Course Summary

This course provides you with theoretical knowledge and practical experience needed to register as a mental health nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Our partnership with the South West London Recovery College offers you the opportunity to learn from and with mental health service users. The focus of mental health nursing is on the person, who is placed at the centre of care. Mental health nurses work in partnership with people to enable them to identify strategies for coping and overcoming their illness. The focus of mental health nursing is on recovery enabling the person to attain a desired quality of life. Mental health nurses work to challenge out of date views regarding mental illness and help service users cope with the stigma that is still present in today's society. Mental health nursing is underpinned by the notion of 'recovery', and you work collaboratively with service users to build on their strengths and manage their problems to encourage the best quality of life. The first year is divided into two parts. In part one you will undertake a bridging module introducing you to the foundations of nursing and healthcare for a graduate nurse. In part two you will look at the context of nursing within a variety of client groups within your specific field of nursing. General nursing topics are studied alongside subjects tailored to mental health nursing. In your second year (part three) you will learn about the analysis and application of research and evidence base, the complexities of nursing at an individual and organizational level as well as preparing for your transition to registered nurse.
