Nursing (Mental Health) - Pre-Registration
Our master’s degree allows you to undertake a Mental Health Nursing course which leads to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
As a mental health nurse you need to be able to show competence in nursing care across people's lifespan. With a particular focus on meeting the needs of people with mental health needs and their families and carers.
The context of healthcare delivery is changing, so it's essential that you can work:
- and collaboratively.
We teach you the skills for evidence-based practice, encouraging you to develop a problem-solving approach to clinical practise.
In line with the new Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Future Nurse Standards (2018), our Mental Health Nursing Master's curriculum has recently been re-developed. At our recent approval event (March 2020) we were commended by the NMC for our excellent partnership working with placement organisations and for the inclusion of a strong public health theme throughout the curriculum.
