Nursing (Mental Health) - Sheffield Hallam University

You can train to be a fully qualified mental health nurse in two years if you have already completed an honours degree, preferably in a health-related subject. After completing the course, you are able to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a qualified nurse. Practice-based learning is central to your development and you spend 45 weeks of your course on placement. You gain experience in a diverse range of practice settings in mental health nursing, such as caring for acutely ill patients in their own homes and a range of other settings. Placements are across South Yorkshire and the Humber, in some of the UK’s leading healthcare providers. On your placements, you are assigned a qualified and experienced nurse as a mentor. They support you and make sure you are comfortable in your surroundings, so you make the most of the experience. You care for people with mental health problems, helping them to live their lives as normally as possible. Work may be based in people's homes, residential units and health centres. The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing delivers courses that enable graduates to register as professionals across a range of health and social care related subject areas. Current government policy drivers require different professional groups to work much more closely together in order to deliver better outcomes for people that use services, whilst making best use of public resources. The size and scope of provision at Sheffield Hallam means that you get to learn with, from and about other professions within health and social care. Our aspiration is to equip you with the knowledge, skills and values that enhance your employment opportunities, give you a strong professional identity as well as confidence in working with different professional groups and agencies. You also gain insight in to other fields of nursing during the course. We provide modern facilities to help you develop clinical skills and specialist knowledge for your career. You study in clinical suites that include a mock ward and operating theatre, replicate the hospital and community settings in which you learn and work. This makes it easier to take what you’ve learnt in the University out into the real world with confidence. After you graduate from this course, you'll have the clinical nursing knowledge and the interpersonal and management skills, vital for effective patient care. **Professional recognition** This course is subject to approval by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
