Mental health nursing plays an important role in society as it deals with the health and support that is needed for people with mental health issues, as well as those of families and carers. Nursing is amongst the most rewarding of all professions, and a UK mental health degree will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to make a difference.
Students studying a mental health nursing degree can expect to spend up to half of their time learning in simulated and practice placements where supervisors and assessors will support them. Mental Health Nursing modules will range from improving your professionalism and personal resilience to recognising individual needs and medicines management.
Graduates in mental health studies can pursue a variety of careers in mental health areas and apply for clinical training, research assistant positions and PhD study. Their specialist training allows them to work as mental health nurses in hospitals, community health centres, and secure facilities such as prisons and mental health wards.

My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
