Nursing is a demanding profession which requires hard work, commitment, the ability to problem-solve, work independently and contribute to care as part of a team. This demanding route is designed to meet the needs of highly motivated graduates, looking to rapidly advance their career within the nursing profession. This course has been closely developed with local Trust partners to reflect the increasing and rapidly changing requirements in patient care provision.
Our Master’s of Mental Health Nursing course adopts a person-centred approach to enable you to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to provide safe and effective nursing care for individuals of all ages experiencing mental distress.
It will enable you, if successful, to apply to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) to practise as a registered Mental Health Nurse in a range of diverse health and social care settings. As a student on this course, the experience you gain will allow you to pursue a range of pathways. In addition you will also have exposure to patients from other areas including adult and learning disability nursing. The opportunities you have coming into nursing are vast: working clinically, becoming a manager, working in a research environment, working abroad and in education.
The course will be split 50% in a clinical practice environment and 50% in an academic setting of the University. As well as graduating with a Master’s degree, upon successful completion you will be able to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Upon completion of the course, students will be able to practice as a registered nurse in the field of Mental Health Nursing.
