    Hey guys, I was wondering if Birmingham University because it is in the Russel Group is regarded as one of the best universities for mental health nursing?

    Would this be any advantage of any sort when searching for my career, or does it not really matter? OR can you name better universities?

    This thread is probably better placed in Nursing and Midwifery than Advice on Everyday Issues, I've moved it for you.

    With nursing, as it is with similar courses like physiotherapy or even medicine, university "prestige" doesn't really matter. The course content for nursing has to meet set criteria from the NMC, so that the standard of nurses joining the register is constant. Your best bet with selecting a university to study nursing is to go and visit the place, see if you like it there, how they teach stuff, what facilities they have and so on. You're going to be living there for the best part of three years (at least) so it's best to choose somewhere you like

    Haha you are great moon. You have answered so many of my previous questions. I would enjoy living in Birmingham but I can also join the queen Alexandra nursing core and do part time psychiatric training alongside my uni to up my profile and gain extra qualities I may need 'if' I become a nursing director
