Content

The BSc Mental Health Nursing course provides you with the knowledge, skills, practical experience and confidence to allow you to become a mental health nursing professional.

Understanding what factors contribute to psychological or neurological health issues is one of the most complex and fascinating fields of healthcare. As a mental health nurse you can start your career working independently or as part of a multi-disciplinary team to treat complex health and mental health needs, with a recovery-focused approach.

Our course is 50% work-based learning, so you’ll be spending a significant amount of time putting what you’ve learnt in lectures into practice in a real-life clinical environment.

Upon graduation, you will achieve registration as a Registered Nurse in mental health with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
