Hiya all! In June I will graduate MSc Psychology (conversion) accreditated by BPS and I have experience as an HCA. And I was wondering if is it possible to have the opportunity to get a job as a health care nurse with my qualifications and work experience and to do some training in nursing while I'm working as MHN. Please let me know your opinion. Thank you

Your not a registered mental nurse, so therefore you can't work as a registered mental health nurse.

If you have worked a sufficient number of hours as a HCA you can complete a 2 year mental health nursing masters.
If you haven't, you would have to do a 3 year undergraduate mental health nursing degree.

As mentioned above, you need to complete a degree in Mental Health Nursing to become a Registered Mental Health Nurse. This is because all nurses in the UK must be registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). A MH Nursing degree is an NMC-accredited course.
