University Of Cumbria Mental Health Nursing

One in four of the UK population will at some time in their lives experience distressing changes in their psychological well-being. It’s vitally important that they receive the proper care and attention they deserve from highly-qualified and supporting nursing staff. Our course will prepare you for the challenges and rewards of a career in mental health nursing, showing you how to provide effective care to help your patients with recovery.

With support provided by expert academic and clinical practice staff, you’ll be well-prepared for practice as a registered nurse upon completion of the course. Our blend of theoretical and practical-based work, provided through placement programmes in a wide range of practices, will teach you through traditional learning methods and hands-on experience. We truly believe that mental health nursing is a life-changing experience, and will do everything we can to get you started in this stimulating profession.

2017 Entry

From 2017 the government will cease to provide bursaries for undergraduate NHS courses. Students will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs, rather than getting an NHS grant. This information is based on the understanding provided by The Council of Deans for Health and may be subject to change as further details are released by the government.

How we can support you

If you enrol onto an undergraduate NHS programme in 2017, we’ll cover the costs of your:

  • Uniform
  • DBS check**
  • Occupational Health check
  • Travel costs for placements of up to £300 each year

This is in addition to any government support agreed.

**Paid on successful enrolment onto course
