By promoting individual strengths, mental wellbeing and independence, Mental Health Nurses support people who are finding it difficult to cope with aspects of their life 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 the provision of care for a range of patients relevant to their chosen nursing pathway. There are opportunities for international placements or experiences at various points in the programme.
On successful completion of the Nursing Studies (Mental Health) (Hons) programme from Glasgow Caledonian University , graduates are eligible for registration as a Registered Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). The programme prepares students to become effective, recovery focused Mental Health Nurses able to work in a range of settings.
These include hospitals, day services, people's homes, addiction services, eating disorders services, forensic services, services for older adults with mental health problems, including dementia, and Child and Adolescent Mental Health services (CAMHs). There are also opportunities in private sector mental health services.
