Course Summary:
Mental health nurses deal with a range of mental health problems. They work in a variety of settings ranging from hospitals and high security services to Drug and Alcohol Services and Community Mental Health Services for people of all ages. Your key role and challenge as a mental health nurse will be to engage in, develop and disengage from therapeutic relationships with service users and their families through the use of effective communication and interpersonal skills. Your aim will be to promote health and wellbeing for individuals alongside assisting them to achieve their full potential in recovery. The Faculty has a therapeutic suite where you will perform, observe, record and play back a variety of interactive simulations based on a range of teaching methods. Work-based learning is integral to this programme so you will undertake supervised and supported clinical practice and experience the full 24-hour shift working pattern. Your clinical and theoretical experiences will assist you in the development of a range of skills such as communication, decision-making, critical thinking, leadership, case management and team working, all of which are underpinned by the professional values of mental health nursing. LJMU’s £1.6 million clinical practice suites will enable you to train on-campus using hospital-standard facilities, including virtual patients. The Suites show a patient’s journey from a home environment through to rehabilitation. They cover a range of areas with the latest clinical equipment for simulations and clinical skills development in child nursing, adult and mental health nursing, paramedic practice, social work and midwifery. This environment will help prepare you for the rigours and realism of actual practice, giving you the confidence to deal with real service users in the NHS, private and voluntary settings. The course has two intakes each year and applicants who accept an offer of a place will be allocated a place in either the September or March intake.

You will be offered feedback at various points during the course and support will be readily available from your individual module tutors should you need advice or guidance at any time. We believe that constructive feedback is vital in helping you identify your strengths as well as the areas that may need further attention.

    Better than a lot of other unis but that’s not saying much, the city, night life and other students make it much more bearable

    It is a good university and tries hard to satisfy students but is not quite a Russell group uni
