Nursing (pre-registration MNurs RN Mental Health)
Our Mental Health Nursing course provides students with an opportunity to gain an Integrated MNurs/Registered Nurse qualification and acts as preparation both for registration as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and for taking on the responsibilities and accountability involved. It aims to provide graduates holding a health-related degree the opportunity to study at Level 7 - the theory that underpins nursing practice and develops knowledge and skills through evidence-based learning. Practice experience is gained in both hospital and community settings. On successful completion of this course students will be able to enter Part one (Mental Health) of the Register held by the NMC. Our Mental Health Nursing course will prepare students to meet the needs of individuals in a variety of settings across a range of organisations. Students will be equipped with the fundamental skills and knowledge to meet the holistic needs of the client. The course will ensure that students appreciate the impact of mental health/emotional issues on the wellbeing of the individual, family or significant other. Students will demonstrate and understand the need for the application of care, values and principles of mental health practice such as compassion, dignity, autonomy, personhood and empowerment. Students will develop the ability to critically analyse the evidence-base of mental health nursing practice and appreciate the value of practiced-based evidence through reflection on care.
Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods, which may include lectures, seminars, problem-based workshops, case discussions, practical activities, group work and tutorials. Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that will underpin your learning journey. You will have access to a Guidance Tutor with whom you can discuss any academic issues. Extensive feedback from both tutors and peers is built into the course.
The course fees for Home/EU students will be covered by the NHS/DOH for the March 2017 and March 2018 intakes. The NHS/DOH also supply a grant and means tested bursary for eligible students.
