    I think health visitors are nurses who have undertaken extra training. I'm not 100% thought. To answer your initial question, with a degree you can really apply for pretty much anything - doesn't have to be health related at all. Pilot, bus driver, managerial etc.

    Health visitor as in a CPN for example? (community psychiatric nurse)

    very commendable but difficult job, my mother gets one of those.

    In the United Kingdom a community psychiatric nurse is a psychiatric nurse based in the community rather than a psychiatric hospital. They form an integral part of community mental health teams. They are often patients' key workers within the NHS mental health system and are often the first port of call for further referrals to psychiatrists, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals. Community psychiatric nurses mainly visit people in their own homes but they also see people in other settings such as GP surgeries or the community mental health team base.
    Community psychiatric nurses are fully trained psychiatric nurses who have several years' experience working in a psychiatric hospital or ward.

    I think if you do the Bsc you're doing just now, plus getting the opportunity of work experience in the NHS you could do this.

    I hope this helps, I know it's a lot of information.
