What are your questions?
How is mental health nursing degree?

Will I learn the skills like what they do in hospitals?
Or is it all just going to be about mental health nursing so I won't know what to dp for someone who is sick like child nurses and adult nurses do?

Are there many job opportunities like there are for child and adult nursing?

For child and adult, I know you can go higher and it can lead to befoming a nurse consultant and nurse practioner.. what about a mental health nurse?

Is the pay good?
And yes

The other time I asked if geometry was difficult, that was the a question... I know that is what you're talking about.

All nurses, regardless of field start as a band 5 nurse.
If you Google agenda for change you'll find out nurse pay.
Similarly, there is room for progression in each field of nursing to become a nurse practitioner etc too.
And you'll learn skills such as blood pressure, and other clinical skills too.
But mental health you'll learn a lot about anti psychotics, anti depressants, a lot of injections etc too.
You will care for people who are sick, they may just not be physically sick. But they still need help to get better. Your skills in that respect will be different as you're caring for people who are mentally unwell.
If you wanted to learn the skills that adult or child nurses do then you'd be doing that field.
Each field is massively different, and mental health is about mental health. You'll look at how to assist with physical health, but if someone needs assistance in that arena, regardless of what field of nursing, they'll need to see a diagnostician. Ie, a doctor who can diagnose and can prescribe treatment.
There is room to become nurse prescribers in nursing, I suggest you do some research in mental health nursing via a few simple Google searches to see where mh nurses work, what they do and what fan be involved in it.
Nursing is so varied now it's difficult to pin down every opportunity and everything available to a qualified nurse!
