Campus Taught

One in four people will experience mental health issues during their lives. As a mental health nurse you’ll help people to work towards recovery with the aim of living fulfilling lives in society.

Mental health nurses work in people's homes, specialist clinics, GP practices and prisons, as well as hospital wards and care homes. Working in multi-disciplinary teams with psychiatrists, social workers, psychologists and occupational therapists you might support children, adolescents, working age or older adults.

You'll need to be open-minded and motivated to help patients understand themselves and their condition. Whether it's assisting someone to overcome major surgery or helping someone with agoraphobia leave their house, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you've made a real difference to people's lives.

Please note we are no longer accepting applications for Preston Campus for 2022 entry. We are still accepting applications for our Westlakes Campus.

We are not recruiting for year two entry to this course for September 2022.

Module Overview

Course Delivery

Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.
