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.
