Course overview The MSc Mental Health Nursing (pre-registration) has been designed with graduates in mind, building upon those existing skills you achieved through your undergraduate degree, and applying these at masters level. One in every eight people in the world live with a mental disorder. This is often characterised by a clinically significant disturbance in an individual’s cognition, emotional regulation, or behaviour (WHO 2022). In addition to exploring a range of mental health conditions and presentations, for example psychosis, depression, self-harm and suicide risk, you’ll identify the variant determinants of health as well as the inequality that exists across populations. You’ll be introduced to the psychosocial interventions and medical treatments that are available. Working within an ethos of patient-centred care and collaboration, you’ll start to build therapeutic relationships with individuals from your first placement experience. You’ll become an advocate for vulnerable patients, adhering to capacity and mental health law yet questioning and challenging coercive practices. Throughout your study, you will split your time equally between placement/simulation-based learning and theory. This course is designed to equip you with both the practical skills and theoretical knowledge needed for you to become a future leader. At Manchester Met, all our academic team in the Department of Nursing have been practising registered nurses from a range of clinical and managerial backgrounds. Our mental health team has been recruited from a diverse background, including community mental health care, alcohol and substance use, acute inpatient, and liaison psychiatry, peri/post-natal mental health and mental health law To fund your postgraduate pre-registration nursing degree, you'll be able to access standard student loans in line with undergraduate funding for pre-registration courses.
