Overview

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.

Career prospects

During your three years on the Mental Health Nursing (Hons) course from Coventry University you will undertake six placements in a range of service settings, working with and alongside qualified mental health nurses, and therefore potential local and regional employers.
