Mental health nursing as a career
The BPP University School of Nursing is committed to producing nursing students who are highly skilled, compassionate, caring professionals.
Mental health nurses work with a variety of people, or can specialise in a particular filed of practice such as adolescents, adults or offenders.
Usually you will be required to work on a number of tasks during any given day such as assessing and supporting patients, encouraging patients to take on therapies, physical care and providing medication, to name a few.
Additionally, you will work closely with support workers, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and health visitors, social workers or the police.
Our aim is to produce nurses who will provide a first class patient care for all service users, in a wide range of healthcare settings.
