Mental Health nurses need to be able to demonstrate competence in the fundamentals of nursing care across peopleâs lifespan, with a particular focus on meeting the needs of people experiencing mental problems and their families and carers.
We recognise that as the context of healthcare delivery is constantly changing, it is essential for nurses to be able to work flexibly, inter-professionally and collaboratively in a way that is meaningful and relevant.
This new and exciting curriculum is designed to give graduating mental health nurses the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to influence improvements in practice, and support them to develop their own professional responsibility towards advancing the profession.
This three-year pre-registration BSc (Hons) degree gives you the chance to undertake a mental health nursing course leading to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
The course is practice-based and you will have the opportunity to work in the full range of hospital and community settings where people with mental health problems are supported or cared for. During the course you will undertake both course specific and multi-professional modules: The core mental health modules allow you to develop your clinical competence, knowledge and skills. You will become knowledgeable about a range of mental health issues and will learn to communicate effectively and therapeutically, whilst developing your understanding of people with mental health problems. The course addresses key values and attitudes including the concepts of positive change, recovery, and collaborating with service users and their carers. The multi-professional modules introduce you to psychological, sociological, biological and cultural perspectives on health.

Oxford Brookes was amazing! The campus was beautiful, really modern and clean, and the facilities there were great. Our course had a good mix of practical applied work and theoretical stuff in lectures, and it really gave me a deep understanding that I could use after my degree. Speaking of, the Careers service was also top notch, and they had loads of stuff going on that helped me walk straight into graduate employment. The student support services were also really comprehensive, with lots of financial and accommodation advice which helped ease my mind a lot.
