Using values based approaches to promote individual strengths, mental wellbeing and independence, Mental Health Nurses support people finding it difficult to cope due to mental health problems.
Students undertake practice learning experience for 50% of the course in a broad range of placements within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. These include NHS community and hospital placements as well as independent and voluntary sector experience.
During these practice learning experiences students are involved in mental health nursing activities, including assessment and providing care and support for a range of patients relevant to their chosen nursing pathway.
For all fields there are opportunities for international placement.
On successful completion of the programme, graduates are eligible for registration as a Registered Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
