About Mental Health Nursing at Bournemouth University

Our new Master’s degree course in Mental Health Nursing, with professional registration, is open to applicants with a first degree or a higher degree. This course prepares you to work in a variety of mental health settings with a diverse range of people. You’ll gain experience within inter-professional practice and develop skills in mental health nursing across the lifespan. 

The Nursing & Midwifery Council's (NMC) Standards for Pre-registration Nursing Education (2018) require programmes leading to registration to be delivered over 4600 hours, with 50% of this theory and 50% practice. The NMC do however permit prior learning, in any subject, to be recognised where this can be mapped against the programme outcomes and requirements. Students applying for this programme will therefore need to demonstrate, through an entry portfolio, that they have the relevant experience and learning prior to entering the course.

One of the primary roles of a mental health nurse is to enable and educate, encouraging those experiencing mental health issues to progress towards recovery. You’ll rehearse practice skills in our dedicated suites, allowing you to integrate your theory into practice in a safe environment. 

Your placements will see you work in a number of exciting and diverse locations, from NHS hospitals to care homes, private clinics to community nursing teams, giving you the experience you need to grow in both confidence and competence. In addition, the MSc has a focus on research skills and leadership, which meet required practice gaps. You will also be prepared for continued study at PhD level. 

Students on this Master’s course will work alongside the BSc (Hons) in Mental Health Nursing students, but will also complete dedicated study at Master's level to achieve a postgraduate qualification.

Students enrolling on this course are eligible to apply for loans from the Student Loans Company. These cover tuition fees of up to £9,250 per year and support living costs. These loans are the same as those available to undergraduate students.

New for 2020: Nursing students on courses from September 2020 may be eligible for a non-repayable government training grant of at least £5,000 a year and mental health nursing students may also be eligible for an additional £1,000 specialist subject payment as it has been confirmed as a shortage specialism. Find out more information about the funding.
