Successful completion of this Mental Health Nursing degree will allow you entry to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Register as a qualified Mental Health Nurse. Currently, if you are a UK student, the fees for your nursing course will be paid by the Welsh Government.
This Mental Health Nursing degree will develop the knowledge and skills you need to work with people of all ages and backgrounds who have mental health problems.
