  • Course description
    One of the primary roles of a mental health nurse is to enable and educate, encouraging those experiencing mental health issues to progress towards recovery. This course prepares you to work in a variety of mental health settings with a diverse range of people. You'll gain experience within inter-professional practice and develop skills in mental health nursing across the lifespan.You'll rehearse practice skills in our dedicated suites, allowing you to integrate your theory into practice in a safe environment. You'll also experience at least 2,500 hours of placements which is required by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). Because of this requirement, the course duration is a minimum of three years to ensure you gain this valuable experience. The health economy is rapidly changing and future nurses are likely to be located in a broader range of workplaces. Your placement opportunities will therefore be in a diverse range of settings which include the growing independent sector as well as care within the community, preparing you to work effectively and meet the health care needs of an increasing ageing population. After graduating you'll have met the standards and competencies set by the NMC to register as a mental health nurse.This is a pre-registration nursing course that has been adapted for those students who already have a degree. We also offer a BSc (Hons) in Mental Health Nursing if you don't have a degree. Students on this PG Dip course will work alongside the BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing students; however some units will be grouped with other PG Dip students from other nursing pathways, and your academic tutor will focus on your individual development at Master's level.
