Mental health nurses provide care for people experiencing mental health problems, working in the community, specialist hospitals or health centres. You will learn about how to support people during the most acute phases of their distress, how to work with people who have issues around substance misuse or offending behaviour and how to help those with ongoing mental health problems.
When attending the University you will be welcomed into a relaxed and friendly environment in which to learn. A wealth of facilities are available to you including formal teaching, group and one-to-one sessions; all provided within a comfortable and enriching learning space.
50% of your studies will be spent in hospital and community settings, within the NHS and independent sector which includes prison placements, where you will spend time in a well-supported environment, working alongside qualified nurse mentors.
In the third year you will have the opportunity to go on an international placement to experience care outside of the UK for example, in Sweden or Germany.
On successful completion of this course you will have a recognised degree qualification that leads to registration as a qualified nurse, with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year, visit www.salford.ac.uk/ug-courses/nursing-foundation-year for details.

Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
