Mental health nursing is a valued, challenging and rewarding career. Our program provides you with the skills and knowledge to become a registered mental health nurse over three years and offers you the opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives; a value that few other professions can offer.
Mental health nurses offer help and support to people of all ages, their families and carers to support recovery from a wide range variety of mental health conditions. The role is diverse; you might help one person to begin to understand their experience of disorder while engaging another about relevant therapies that can help with their Recovery. Mental health care can be offered in a variety of situations including hospitals, homes and community settings. Whilst the key role of the mental health nurse is to form therapeutic relationships it is imperative that they are also able to provide holistic and recovery focused-care, key principles and skills that we develop through our program.
While you will specialise in mental health nursing from the start of the course the integrated nature of teaching means you will learn with those studying children’s nursing and adult nursing. Sharing ideas between disciplines will broaden your perspective on health care and help to sharpen your focus on your own field.
By fully engaging with this degree you will develop your therapeutic skills and strategies, skills for holistic and dignified patient care, awareness of diversity issues, and the opportunity to investigate strategies for tackling stigma and promoting social inclusion. This will enable you to deliver high quality nursing care in a rapidly changing environment.
You will be taught by motivated and knowledgeable lecturers in the field of mental health nursing who are influencing healthcare across Wales and beyond through engagement and research. This is demonstrated by our School receiving 1st place in the UK for research environment in the most recent Research Excel
