Career Prospects

What are my career prospects?

Mental health nurses work in hospitals, clinics and the community, supporting and treating people who are being assessed for, or are diagnosed with, a mental illness. Mental health refers to a person’s cognitive and emotional wellbeing – how they think, feel and behave. As is the case in physical health, nurses can promote mental health by building good relationships with patients, encouraging healthy behaviours, and recognising and treating symptoms early.

There are a range of mental health conditions which need specialised treatment. These include anxiety, depression, psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and personality disorder. Some of these conditions are life-long and each person will need individually tailored education, treatment and guidance to manage symptoms.

Following registration as a mental health nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, you can pursue a career in a wide variety of settings and specialisms including general psychiatry in hospital and community settings such as adult and older adult specialist services (including addictions), children and young people, and forensic services.

This course will also prove useful in the areas of leadership, management and consultancy, as well as education and research. There are significant opportunities for further professional development and specialism.
