Nursing is one of the most rewarding careers to enter, and more importantly it is a privilege. Mental Health Nurses work with children and adults. As a specialist nurse you will be able to assess, plan and develop individual packages of care designed to provide the appropriate levels of physical, emotional and psychological care for people while meeting the challenges of a changing healthcare environment. This degree enables you to gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to help plan, coordinate and deliver care in a safe, compassionate and effective way. As well as understanding the specific needs of those with mental health problems you will gain a broader awareness of the needs of all client groups.

Great place, with so many friendly people! There's loads to do, no matter what you’re into – you can hike in the Lake District or go down to the lovely beach in Sefton, or party in Liverpool or Manchester, all of which is less than half an hour away on trains or via cheap taxis. Ormskirk is a little small, but that’s the only problem! The teachers are incredibly supportive and friendly, and you'll have access to loads of helpful resources on your course.
I can thankfully say that I made the right choice in uni for me. I honestly love it here and will be really sad to leave when I graduate. I can happily vouch that there are things to do if you don’t drink or do clubbing etc. here.
