About Mental Health Nursing (with Foundation Year option) at Bournemouth University

Accredited by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) against the NMC’s 2018 standards, our course in Mental Health Nursing expertly blends theory with real-world experience and was developed in conjunction with practice partners, service users and carers and students. The course aim is to give you  all the knowledge and skills needed to feel confident working as a nurse and to be eligible to register as a Mental Health Nurse with the NMC and is an ideal choice for those looking to gain the expert knowledge and practical skills needed to enter the mental health nursing.

Dealing with mental health problems is challenging for both the patient and their carers, and as evidence shows that one in four people will struggle with mental health issues at some point during their life, it’s a rapidly expanding area of nursing that needs competent and caring professionals.

Specifically designed to give you a solid grounding in the theoretical and professional skills needed to offer high-quality nursing care that meets the needs of clients, service users and their families, this course will ultimately teach you how to enable, educate, and encourage those experiencing mental health problems to progress towards recovery.

Practical experience takes a central role in the course, completed in a variety of healthcare environments which includes community and hospital settings. As part of your placement you’ll take part in the full cycle of care which includes shift working, weekends and night duty. 

Foundation Year: We have a Foundation Year option for UK students who do not meet the entry requirements for the degree course. This additional year of study will give you a grounding in the scientific skills needed to prepare you for the Mental Health Nursing degree, building your confidence, knowledge and skills for further study. After successful completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress to the full degree and begin your Mental Health Nursing study. 

The Foundation Year will be based at the Talbot Campus, Bournemouth.

New funding: All 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.
