Summary

Nursing is one of the most varied and challenging careers anyone can undertake. Nursing is frequently described as exciting and fulfilling; no two days are the same. Our MSc is your entry route through to nurse registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a nurse in the mental health field. Graduates in any discipline with recent health care experience can apply for our two year programme. On completion you will progress on to a rewarding career and work in a range of healthcare settings nationally or internationally. Once you know a nursing career is for you, and you are ready for advanced level study, then join us on this tailor made programme which is designed to recognise the skills that graduates already have and build on these. The first three modules will equip you with a range of knowledge and skills designed to settle you into the role of the student nurse. Following these three modules your programme will be integrated with other pre-registration nursing students in their second year of study. Key features

• Experience a programme that teaches contemporary and innovative mental health practice • Focus on developing your interpersonal skills and the importance of building therapeutic relationships. • Equip yourself with the knowledge and confidence to graduate with professional status as a registered mental health nurse. • Qualify with outstanding employment opportunities in a profession that offers excellent career progression. • Experience clinical placements across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, designed to maximise your range of experiences and clinical skills. In addition a key feature of the MSc programme will be the dedicated Master’s level seminar and tutorial support time that students will experience which is built around critical reflexivity (thinking deeply about the impact of our assumptions, values, and actions on others). The programme cumulates in a 40 credit systematic review module that prepares students to perform as a capable and autonomous practitioner, fit for registration in the mental health field of nursing practice.
