Program Description

If you hope for a rewarding career, a Mental Health Nursing degree can train you to help the 1 in 4 of us now expected to need treatment.

Mental health nursing is a value-based and very rewarding profession working with children, young people and adults of all ages with a variety of mental health problems and from numerous cultures and backgrounds. These specialist nurses are usually based in hospitals or in the community, for example, in GP surgeries, prison health, community health care or residential centres and patients’ own homes.

This course is designed to help equip you with the hands-on clinical and care skills to prepare you to practise autonomously and compassionately, providing person-centred and compassionate care and support for service users to be physically safe and emotionally secure.

Ranked 4th for Nursing and Midwifery in The Guardian University Guide 2020, Coventry offers a Clinical Skills Centre with up-to-date equipment and simulators. This course benefits from the highest levels of student satisfaction – 96% overall in the National Student Survey (NSS 2018).
