Do you have patience, empathy and excellent listening skills? Are you interested in caring for the mind and the body? If you’re looking for a career in nursing where you can work with people of all ages across a variety of settings, then our Nursing (Mental Health) degree could be a great place to start your journey. Mental health nursing involves working with people suffering from various mental health conditions, and their families and carers, to offer help and support in dealing with the condition. This could include anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, eating disorders, psychosis and obsessive compulsive disorders. This course is designed to help you become a confident, competent and compassionate nurse. It’s regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and led by committed and passionate lecturers who are research active with experience across the mental health nursing spectrum. They will support you to develop the intellectual, personal and professional skills you need to practice in this challenging and rewarding field of healthcare. Alongside building your theoretical knowledge in lectures and seminars, you’ll be able to focus on your practical skills through simulation, role play and group work. You'll also be able to practice and develop your skills through in-patient and community clinical placements in a range of statutory, private and voluntary services, in order to prepare you to pursue your career. Above all, we want to help you achieve your potential as a nurse and while there is a clear focus on mental health nursing, the course also covers how to respond to the needs of all patients and service users from fields of nursing including adult and child. After successfully graduating from the course you’ll be eligible to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and work as a Registered Nurse in Mental Health.
