About Nursing (Mental Health) with NMC Registration at Buckinghamshire New University

This two-year course allows graduates with an honours degree to take the next steps towards a rewarding career in nursing. As a graduate you already have many transferrable skills needed to succeed, including ability to organise, work within a team and manage your time. Your degree means you can complete your nursing qualification and register with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) faster.

Working with mental health patients can be demanding and complex. We help you develop the necessary personal and professional qualities an employer would want in a nurse. As well as learning about policy and procedure, you will develop important attributes such as empathy and compassion. Additionally you'll learn how to cope with challenging situations and will leave the course feeling confident in a clinical setting.

Nurses working in this field require excellent communication skills. As part of the practical element of the course you will work with other health professionals to manage patients and attend to their specific needs. The mix of contact hours and work placements means when you finish the course you'll have all the necessary skills to enter the workplace as a registered nurse and deliver a high standard of care.
