Course Summary

Overview

About this course

Join our accelerated two-year degree to qualify as a Registered Mental Health Nurse. You must hold an undergraduate degree (Level 6) in any field and health and/or social care experience to apply.

Your programme is made up of a number of core modules which are part of the course framework. Some programmes also have optional modules that can be selected to enhance your learning in certain areas and many feature a dissertation, extended report or research project to demonstrate your advanced learning.

In order to meet the NMC requirements, all of your modules on MSc Nursing are Core. This means all students on the course study them.

Reflecting on your own and and fellow student nurses' simulated clinical practice is a great way to help you develop skills, build confidence and prepare for real-world placements. To do this in the best way possible, we have invested in state-of-the-art recording equipment in each of our clinical practice suites and other teaching spaces. During specific modules, you will be asked to take part in the filming of both yourself and other students. The footage recorded is strictly confidential and must not be shared inappropriately or released into the public domain. Being professional and having respect for others must always be maintained. This strict confidentiality ensures you can be at ease and fully engage with your teaching and learning experiences.

Modules

In this module, we will introduce you to a range of values, attitudes and skills that underpin safe and effective clinical practice. You will also explore an overview of the human body systems that inform skills for nursing practice and develop an overview of psychosocial concepts in relation to well-being, disease and illness. Once you have completed the module, you will be able to participate in guided care to achieve the proficiencies with associated NMC Professional Values (progression point 1) and demonstrate knowledge and skills relevant to medicines management.
