About Mental Health Nursing (Advanced Standing) at Bournemouth University

Many nurses may wish to undertake training for a different part of the nursing register at some point in their careers. This programme provides a conversion course for nurses who wish to move from one part of the nursing register to another.

Successful completion of the course will lead to a qualification in BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing.

Acceptance on to the programme depends on a number of factors. For example:

  • Initial field of registration.
  • Academic level of initial registration.
  • The date of the applicant’s original registration.
  • The availability of adequate resources to enable the applicant to join the programme with advanced standing e.g. vacancies within programmes, or placements.

The duration of the course will depend on your previous qualifications and experiences. The average time for a programme leading to a second registration is normally 18 months. However, the team needs to be assured that you are able to meet all professional and academic requirements. This decision is based upon your recent experience and evidence of study.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees for students starting in September 2018 are:

  • UK/EU/Channel Islands: £1,541* per module studied (you must already be NMC registered)
  • International (non-EU): £2,617 per module studied 

You may fund yourself or alternatively, the NHS, through its Workforce Development Directorates, may choose to contract the university for places. In this case you would normally need to be sponsored by an existing employer (e.g. an NHS trust). Your fees would be paid for you and there may be salary replacement funding. Similarly your Trust may choose to second you to undertake the programme. If you fund yourself, you would not receive a salary.
