Nursing (Mental Health)

As a student at UEA, you’ll study aspects of mental health nursing from core nursing skills right the way through to specialist areas such as working in forensic settings, with children, and with people who have dementia. Split 50/50 between academic theory and hands-on practice, our three-year course will see you undertake a range of placements in care homes, the community, hospitals and specialist care units. You will study alongside other healthcare students, giving you a greater insight into the responsibilities and roles of other healthcare professions. So you’ll graduate fully-equipped with the skills and experience you’ll need for a career working with people with complex mental health problems. With the NHS Constitution at its core, our Mental Health Nursing degree provides rigorous training, fantastic placement opportunities and is fully approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). **Highlights of Mental Health Nursing at UEA** - A wide range of placements including community settings, care homes, hospitals and specialist care units - Regular group work with other healthcare students to help develop teamwork skills - Combine 50% theory with 50% practice, and link the two with enquiry-based learning - A highly supportive culture **Course Structure** Our Mental Health Nursing degree features two academic modules and clinical placements in each of its three years. Our learning programme combines small group teaching, lectures and self-directed study, scheduled between 9am and 7pm. Clinical practice placements, however, are designed to reflect the typical working patterns of a qualified nurse, and will include a minimum of 75 hours on night duty. **Placements** You will be allocated to placements in a wide variety of settings, where you will be able to use and develop your skills and knowledge in a clinical environment under professional supervision. You’ll work closely with service users of all ages and their families. Due to the nature of healthcare environments, you’ll also experience 24hr and 7-day-week work cycles. By the end of your course you will have completed the number of assessed placement hours required by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for professional registration. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
