Course details
Course UCAS code: B767
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
Develop your nursing skills and healthcare knowledge through working with People who experience psychological and emotional distress. We are one of a small number of schools in the UK which score highly in both teaching and research. We were rated ‘Gold’ in the 2017 Teaching Exercise Framework, ranked 8th in the UK for our research power (2014 Research Exercise Framework). Our BSc Mental Health Nursing course is aimed at those who are committed to providing excellence in care to people who experience mental health problems. Mental health nurses make a vital contribution to supporting service users’ recovery, working alongside people to help them manage their distress and work towards individual goals. Alongside the huge range of University support services, particular care has been given to develop a course that supports you to become a confident and independent learner. As such, the course has been specially developed to provide the wide-ranging, high-level skills you need; not just in terms of the practical work you will do, but also by sharpening your creativity, critical judgement and ability to lead. You will have a range of allocations and experiences including community, acute or crisis support, and mental healthcare of the older person. Additional experiences may include forensic services, including high secure hospital, child and adolescent mental health services, substance misuse and addiction services, liaison psychiatry, and mother and baby mental health services. These placements are across the NHS private, voluntary and independent sector. You will also have international opportunities; an elective placement or ERASMUS funded European placement.
Modules:
In your first year you will develop essential care and assessment skills, learn safeguarding issues, such as infection control and detecting vulnerable people, and learn how to work in a professional setting. In year two, you will build on your previous experience from first-year placements and study. You will then begin to take on more responsibility, and further your clinical reasoning skills as you start to look after one or two patients of your own. By your final year you will be working under more distant supervision, and you will be responsible for a small group of patients making confident and proactive decisions for their health.
