Nursing (Mental Health) - Pre-Registration
MSc or PGCert
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. And instil you with confidence to use your own clinical and professional judgement to influence practice.
Our Nursing (Mental Health) master’s degree is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and is currently undergoing re-approval by the NMC in line with the new NMC Future Nurse Standards (2018). This means that course structure and module information outlined may be subject to change.
