Subject

Mental health nursing

Mental health nursing is a rewarding though demanding career and this course offers the opportunity to gain a degree and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Mental Health Nurses work with people experiencing a range of mental health issues in a variety of settings addressing not only their mental health but also their physical, social and spiritual needs. Each year of the programme has both generic and mental health field specific modules equating to 120 credits per year. We have a range of placements available for students which include child and adolescent services, inpatient units, community mental health teams, older person’s services, medium secure units and substance misuse services. The course is appropriate for careers working with people of all ages facing physical and mental health challenges or living with learning disabilities who need professional nursing care. The taught elements of this course can be delivered at both the Bangor and Wrexham Archimedes Centre campuses so students can choose which location they wish to apply for.
