BSc(Hons)/BSc Nursing (Mental Health) is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which means you can register as a mental health nurse with them when you graduate. With high quality practical training, experienced mentors, and outstanding onsite facilities, you’ll learn how to care for people of all ages with a variety of mental health issues, both in the community and hospital settings. Learn about good nursing practice, and study the theory that underpins it. Develop strong inter-professional and interpersonal skills – gaining experience of working with patients. Work with a dynamic, supportive academic team with a depth of experience in mental health. The course has a strong practical focus, incorporating case-based learning, with extensive use of our advanced Simulation Suite. You’ll spend about half your time on placements in the NHS, and with independent and social care providers. There’s also the chance to develop and apply your skills working abroad through an elective or Erasmus experience. Mental health nurses are in demand across the UK, and you could go on to work in a broad variety of specialist areas and interesting roles. Our graduates work for the NHS, in hospitals and community settings. You could also take your skills into the armed forces, prison service or the private and voluntary sector. Please note we don't accept deferred entry applications for this course and we can't accept applications from international students (overseas fee status) due to funding arrangements.
