Through theoretical study, practical experience and reflective discussion, you'll hone your skills in mental health nursing. We'll encourage you to develop an intellectual curiosity that will support your development throughout your career.
In the Nursing (Mental Health) course at the University of York , you'll learn how to develop a therapeutic relationship with your clients and gain the skills you need to help people with mental health problems. You'll work with social workers, psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and doctors and have opportunities to engage with third sector and service user organisations.
You'll graduate ready to register as a highly-skilled nurse, able to provide excellent mental health care. You'll be confident undertaking research and using evidence to develop nursing practice.
