The Nursing - Child and Mental Health (Dual) (Hons) programme from the University of Birmingham provides you with many opportunities to gain experience treating patients from a wide range of different backgrounds and cultures. 


This innovative Nursing - Child and Mental Health (Dual) (Hons) programme from the University of Birmingham will supply you with the knowledge, skills and competencies required to become a registered nurse in child and mental health nursing practice. Your development as a future leader in nursing will be enhanced through the development of clinical, research, leadership and quality improvement which are taken at Masters level. The School of Nursing has an active research programme and students undertaking the Master of Nursing will be aligned with one of our themes for the final year of the course.


On graduation and qualification, you will have a highly regarded degree and eligibility to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) to practice as a Registered Nurse.

This programme is designed to enhance your future career development in nursing. You will have a thorough grounding in the study and practice of nursing, including concepts of health derived from the study of the biological and social sciences, professional studies and communication skills, together with the professional disciplinary knowledge and understanding of your preferred field of practice of nursing (Adult, Mental Health or Child).

There is high local demand for graduate nurses and on gaining employment as a registered nurse, you will then undergo a period of preceptorship and practice development.

Our nursing graduates are highly valued and the majority seeking nursing positions have secured employment or pursued further career-related training on completing the programme. Many of our graduates stay in the Birmingham area and work in the NHS, others move on to take up appointments in the UK and overseas. There are many varied career opportunities for nursing in clinical practice, management, research and education. Extensive restructuring in nursing as a profession and within the NHS means that a good career structure is now in place.
