Course summary

Why study BSc Mental Health Nursing (Professional Practice) (top-up) at Middlesex Universi A 2010 amendment by the Nursing and Midwifery Council now requires pre-registration nurses to have a minimum of degree level study. This means employers increasingly require mental health nurses from band five upwards to hold at least a degree qualification. Our course will help you top-up your knowledge and pursue a career in the mental health nursing field. This 18 month top-up course has been designed specifically for qualified and registered mental health nurses who already hold a DipAdvanced, CertHE or DipHE qualification (who have engaged in credited CPD studies following qualification) who want to study for an undergraduate degree. You’ll study many broad topics and practice approaches to build on your existing knowledge and to expand your skills. You’ll also get the opportunity to study clinical and professional practice-related inquiry methods that’ll help you engage in clinical and healthcare practice alongside organisational development. This course will expand your skills, develop your clinical practice and boost your career opportunities in the field. After graduation, you can look forward to expanding your career into specialist and leadership roles or even undertake postgraduate studies. Your career options will include clinical manager, research nurse, clinical positions, and many more. How you’ll practice your skills You’ll undertake study projects where you’ll explore many different themes. Past projects have looked at service needs of patients with dual diagnoses in a community mental health forensic setting. Studying with other practising nurses will also go further in enhancing your learning. We ensure you’ll receive career counselling guidance before, during and after your course, as well as support from senior staff. Get the support you need Our personalised approach gives you the support you need to succeed as a student. While you're an undergraduate or foundation year student, you’ll have a Personal Tutor directly related to your course. If you need support with academic writing, numeracy and library skills, we’ll be sure to provide it.
