Course info

Summary

Course Overview

As a society, we generally find it much easier to talk about being physically unwell than about mental ill health. Mental illness requires just as much care as physical illness - sometimes even more so. Being a mental health nurse means you'll be crucial in helping people get their lives back on track.

Whether you have a personal experience with people with mental illness or simply want to help those who struggle day-to-day, you can apply to be a mental health nurse. You will help people get through their illness, whether it is anxiety, depression, psychotic disturbances, paranoia, dementia or other disorders affecting older people.

Understanding the science of care

Nursing involves more than practice. You'll grasp the theory and facts behind diagnosis that can help you make crucial decisions when looking after a patient. You will be able to design strategies for the collection and analysis of scholarly material relating to nursing care, as well as being able to identify nursing issues from a wide perspective. You will be able to lead changes in practice, improving the quality of delivery of care.
