Study Mental Health Degrees

Mental health is one of the most pressing issues that today's society faces. With more and more people living with mental health and its related problems, the care of these people becomes increasingly harder and demanding. The education of mental health nurses is integral to the treatment of mental health issues. As a mental health nurse, you will help patients through their treatment and recovery, as well as supporting their families and friends.

An undergraduate degree in mental health nursing will give you a foundation level knowledge of nursing, alongside the specifics needed for mental health nursing. You will be given opportunities to develop your nursing skills, through both theory and practical learning. The professional practice you gain will ensure that you are fully prepared to enter the workplace once you have qualified.

Your course will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as technical and practical sessions. You will be required to participate in a clinical work experience placement, to aid your professional development and give you a chance to practice skills you have been taught.
