Course summary


Mental Health Nurses are in high demand in the UK. Our MSci Nursing (Adult and Mental Health) qualifies you to work as a dual registered nurse in both adult nursing and mental health nursing.

You’ll work with adults experiencing significant mental distress or behavioural problems. And learn fascinating topics such as:

  • Family Health and Wellbeing
  • Adult with complex care needs
  • Global Health
  • Therapeutic Use of Touch in Healthcare Settings
  • Approaches to Challenging Behaviour.

You will gain direct care experiences with adults. And a wide variety of hospital and community practice experience throughout Oxfordshire. There are also specialist placements available in the surrounding counties.

This exciting course is designed to give you the knowledge, skills and attitudes you'll need to succeed. We will support you to develop your interpersonal and therapeutic skills in both fields of nursing practice. And you will graduate as a confident, responsible, professional practitioner.
