Northumbria University has an established reputation for excellence and innovation in nursing education. We are working closely with our NHS partners to deliver a pre-registration Nursing Science course that embodies the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s ‘FutureNurse’ standards, to equip you to lead your profession. The BSc Nursing Science (Mental Health) course will prepare you to build experience in a professional health care role, and graduate with NMC Registration as a fully Registered Nurse. Studying within the requirements of the new NMC standards means that you will be ‘future nurse’ ready, demonstrating critical thinking skills in relation to complex healthcare issues and the health and wellbeing of your patients and their families. You will study partially at our Coach Lane Campus, and partially on clinical placement, with both strands running alongside each other to give you an integrated approach to theory and practice. You will study within the standard university semester system, allowing time during the Easter and summer breaks for additional projects and internships – or simply a well-earned rest. This programme will equip you to be curious, creative and collaborative in your care. It will allow your compassion to thrive within an evidence-based approach and it will enable you to make a genuine impact on the mental health and wellbeing of people, their families and the wider community.
