Why study BSc Mental Health Nursing (Professional Practice) (Top-up) Honours at Middlesex University?

This one year top-up course is designed for qualified and registered midwives with a DipAdvanced, CertHE or DipHE qualification (who have engaged in credited CPD studies following qualification), to gain an undergraduate degree. The topics studied are broad and will equip already practising midwives the underpinning knowledge to expand their skills, their practice and career opportunities.

As a qualified midwife in practice you will have the opportunity to study clinical and/or professional practice-related inquiry methods in order to engage in clinical and/or healthcare practice and/or organisational development.

Course highlights

This programme will enhance your opportunities for career progression or further study, allowing you to pursue careers within healthcare education or research.

Although you will be in current employment, successful completion of the programme may rapidly expand your career opportunities into specialist and leadership roles, and allow you the opportunity to undertake postgraduate studies.  Career opportunities may include senior clinical positions, research nurse, or clinical manager.
