One of the primary roles of a mental health nurse is to enable and educate, encouraging those experiencing mental health issues to progress towards recovery. The course prepares students to work in a variety of mental health settings with a diverse range of people. You will gain experience within inter-professional practice and develop skills in mental health nursing across the lifespan.
A key element of nurse education concerns an ability to work alongside a broad range of health and social care professionals. Throughout the course you will study alongside others undertaking health related degrees delivered by BU. This includes students studying other fields of nursing, social work, midwifery, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.
