    I'm applying for that course! It sounds so good. But I'm applying for just mental health at other uni's

    Hello there
    first of all i would like to say well done for choosing nursing, I am a registered nurse of 18 years and its very rewarding if frustrating at times,
    the course you have found seems to be similar to one that sheffield Hallam university have on offer (im to sure if they still do) but if I'm correct at the end of the course you will be able to register as a mental health nurse and a social worker.
    thais has many advantages especially if you are not 100 percent sure what profession you wish to be in, i would suggest you look around and find the best course for you, as a mental health nurse a lot of your work can cross with social work anyway. you need to be sure you will be able to manage the workload and that the university is attached to hospitals you are happy with.
    good luck
