Subject

Mental health nursing

* Study a mental health nursing degree for a rewarding career supporting the recovery of individuals with mental health issues.*

Mental health nurses play an important role in the health and well-being of people with mental health problems and their families and carers. Our degree in mental health nursing prepares you for the role and responsibilities as a registered mental health nurse. You'll be working in the NHS serving south-east London and Kent.

We provide you with the skills to meet the diverse needs of people with mental health problems, including those with complex needs. You will learn accountability for the role you will play in their lives.

We prepare you to apply for registration as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Our course will help you achieve the outcomes identified in the NMC Standards Framework for Pre-registration Nursing Programmes (2019).

All nursing students on courses from September 2020 will benefit from guaranteed, additional support of at least £5,000 a year, which they will not need to pay back. See more information on the following link: https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/nhs-learning-support-fund

Modules

Like all universities, the University of Greenwich must develop our pre-registration nursing and midwifery courses in line with the requirements as stated in the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (2018) standards framework for nursing and midwifery education. These standards underpin all education for nurses, midwives and nursing associates. To do this we have a schedule of programme re-approvals, and this course and the module content is currently subject to this review process. We anticipate this to be finalised by April 2020 and will consult you of any further changes should they arise before the start date.
