Ready to care for and protect people facing mental health challenges? Gain eligibility to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a qualified mental health nurse and apply for registration with Social Work England as a qualified social worker. When individuals are struggling with their mental health, they need healthcare professionals they can trust and build a relationship with – especially when they may be at risk of harming themselves or others. You can make a difference by becoming a mental health nurse and social work practitioner. This integrated Masters course is delivered alongside our partners in the Cheshire & Merseyside Social Work Teaching Partnership and leads to eligibility for two professional awards. During the course, our expert teaching team will cover topics across health, social care, and education. We’ll give you hands-on experience and show you where your future role fits into multidisciplinary teams. You’ll also become an expert in assessing risk and managing complex scenarios. A career in this field is challenging, but rewarding. We’ll use case studies to help you navigate the ethical dilemmas integrated practitioners face. At the same time, you’ll learn how to apply theory in the real world, helping you provide the best possible care.
