Our Mental Health nursing degree is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. We’ll train you to join a health care team upon graduation.
Mental Health nursing is a challenging yet rewarding profession where you can make a real difference to people’s lives.
Our innovative Mental Health Nursing course will prepare you to meet the needs of a modern profession and provide the best possible patient care. You will leave us as a confident and capable practitioner, fully equipped to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and join a health care team upon graduation.
Our course curriculum is informed by the latest research and encourages you to take an evidence-based approach to nursing care. We believe that mental health and wellbeing services must respect the intrinsic value of people and their individuality. This philosophy is firmly held by all members of the course team.
We work with our course partner, NHS Forth Valley, to ensure that our course remains clinically excellent and our students get the best possible experience while they’re studying.
BSc (Hons) Nursing students
BSc Honours Nursing students follow the same programme structure as the BSc Nursing for the first two and a half years of their programme. After that point, Honours students carry out an additional placement module with the opportunity to study overseas.
In their final year, Honours students complete additional modules including a dissertation and their NMC-required final placement, achieving registration and their Honours degree at the end of Year 4.
