Mental Health nurses have a key role in promoting the mental and physical health and wellbeing of individuals and communities, and preventing the development of mental health problems.
They are highly skilled in assessing the impact of mental health problems on a personâs thoughts, emotions, behaviour, physical and social health. They deliver care and treatment in partnership with the individual, their support networks and other professionals, making mental health nursing a stimulating and challenging field of nurse practice.
They focus on developing therapeutic relationships based on hope, trust, acceptance and honesty. The belief in the potential of people to recover and live a full and rewarding life is vital.
This course will develop you into a skilled and confident mental health nurse, equipped to deliver relationship and recovery-focused nursing whilst taking into account the rights of the patients and their carers.
This course has been developed to enable you to become a confident and capable nurse who is equipped to practise effectively within hospital and community-based environments. Successful completion of the course (depending on the chosen field of practice you select when you apply) will lead to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Registered Nurse with a mark denoting your field of practice.
In each year, you will explore the themes of: health; understanding health inequalities; health-promotion; information literacy and effectiveness; person centred practice; essential clinical nursing skills for delivering safe practice; and bio-psycho-social sciences, underpinning nursing practice across the lifespan.
All three BNursing courses have strong, well-established partnerships with clinicians and managers in hospital and community settings. With 50% of your study taking place in practice settings, you will learn how to reflect upon and apply relevant theoretical concepts within âreal-lifeâ environments. The expertise and skills of clinical staff and the willingness of patients to support the learning of healthcare professionals are key resources for your learning. Interprofessional education experiences are embedded within the programme at each stage, enabling you to learn with a wide variety of other health and social care students

RGU (as everyone calls it) is large, with each subject area being given its own space. It's a great environment to work and socialise in, with clean and airy buildings and plenty of events going on all year round. Situated next to the River Dee, it has a more natural atmosphere than other universities. It may not be close to the clubs but being on a main bus route fixes this. With an Asda down the road and food cooked inside RGU is a great place to study.
