Is this course for me?

This two-year course allows graduates with an honours degree to take the next steps towards a rewarding career in nursing. As a graduate you already have many transferrable skills needed to succeed, including ability to organise, work within a team and manage your time. Your degree means you can complete your nursing qualification and register with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) faster.

What will this course cover?

Working with mental health patients can be demanding and complex. We help you develop the necessary personal and professional qualities an employer would want in a nurse. As well as learning about policy and procedure, you will develop important attributes such as empathy and compassion. Additionally you'll learn how to cope with challenging situations and will leave the course feeling confident in a clinical setting.

Nurses working in this field require excellent communication skills. As part of the practical element of the course you will work with other health professionals to manage patients and attend to their specific needs. The mix of contact hours and work placements means when you finish the course you'll have all the necessary skills to enter the workplace as a registered nurse and deliver a high standard of care.

Modules

Year One
• Essential Nursing Skills (Mental Health)
• Learning for Life
• Fundamental Approaches to Nursing

Year Two
• Leadership and Management in Practice (Mental Health)
• Collaborative Nursing Skills (Mental Health)
• Research and Innovation in Nursing
• Nursing in the Community

Attendance

Half of your time will be spent in University and half will be spent on placement. While on placement you will be assigned a clinical member of staff who mentors and supervises you to make sure you are meeting the standards of the course.

You will have a summer break in stage two of the programme.

Practical Placements

During stage one and two you will spend time in three clinical settings for approximately 20 weeks in each year. In stage three you will undertake three weeks of placement and an additional four weeks if you choose.

Careers

We prepare you for the workplace with training that gives you all the qualities of a good nurse. We also have good links with the NHS through our partnership with local NHS Trusts.

As a mental health nurse you will plan and deliver care for patients in hospitals, residential units and patient's homes. You may also find you will develop expertise in a particular area such as substance misuse or adolescence mental health services.

Although typically most registered nurses will work within hospitals there are other opportunities such as working within the prisons or mental health service. As you gain experience as a nurse you will be offered opportunities to progress to positions of responsibility and leadership roles. Within nursing there are many opportunities in related clinical, educational and management roles.

After completing your Postgraduate Diploma you are eligible to register for the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). At this point you also have the option to extend your qualification to an MSc by completing a dissertation.
