You’ll learn how to assess the needs of your patient, communicate effectively with professional colleagues, and provide sensitive support for the patient and their families.

We’re integrating our BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing degree with our BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing degree so that you learn shared skills as well as field specific knowledge.

As a graduate, you’ll have the skills to manage both the physical and psychological needs of patients.
