**Why choose this course?** Mental health nursing is a highly rewarding career where you can make a real difference. One in four people experience mental health problems in any given year, and this course prepares you to work in collaboration with service users, their relatives and carers towards recovery. It is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) so you can become a registered mental health nurse. Half of your time on the course will be on placements and in simulation suites. Our award-winning simulation suite has twice won the Student Nursing Times Teaching Innovation of the Year award and you'll be taught by our skilled clinical, research and academic staff. You can take an adult insight placement to develop the physical health skills needed in mental health nursing and at the end of your second year you'll have the opportunity to take an elective placement nationally or internationally. We have strong partnerships with service user and carer-led organisations. These include the Recovery College, the Sutton Carers Centre and the South West London Recovery College, where you will have the opportunity to learn first-hand from mental health service users.
