Mental health and wellbeing is a growing health concern for our society. During this accelerated two-year course, youâll develop the expertise to manage both the physical and psychological needs of patients.
Upon successful completion, you will be eligible for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a Registered Nurse (Mental Health nurse, level 1).
In addition to time spent in practice placement, youâll have a mix of simulated and technology-enhanced learning, university attendance in shared groups, field-specific groups, or interdisciplinary learning.
Some of the topics youâll explore include the ethics of medicine management, recovery approaches, and intervention therapies for substance abuse. Youâll also learn practical skills in conflict resolution, how to manage challenging behaviour, and how to safeguard vulnerable patients.
At Manchester Met, all of our teaching team in the Department of Nursing have been practising nurses, health visitors or advanced practitioners at some point in their careers. Some of their specialist areas include nutrition, stroke rehabilitation, acute and emergency care, palliative and cancer care, dementia, and mental health.
Most of our academic staff still practice and work shifts in their specialist areas, alongside their roles at Manchester Met. This helps to make sure that the skills they teach you in the classroom are real, relevant and up-to-date with current NHS standards.
We are currently welcoming applications to this innovative course and will commence enrolment to our January intake upon receipt of NMC and University approval (due June 2019).**
Level 7 - 90% coursework, 10% examination, coursework and examination includes theoretical and practical learning in a variety of environments.
