Mental Health Nursing (including Foundation Year) at University of Chester - UCAS

Course summary

Foundation Year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so. Once the Foundation Year has been completed successfully, you can then go on to complete your nursing degree. The nursing degree is accredited with the NMC. Make a unique contribution to the health and wellbeing of those experiencing, or at risk of developing mental health problems on this pre-registration nursing course.
