About this course

With this BSc Mental Health Nursing degree, you'll develop the knowledge and skills needed to provide high-quality, evidence-based care to people experiencing challenges to their mental health. Southampton is a world-leader when it comes to nursing and you'll be taught by highly-regarded educators and researchers.

We are no longer taking applications for September 2021 entry.

Our graduates are encouraged to respond with compassion to the unique needs of all people, and you will develop a deep knowledge of person-centred care.

On this course, you'll also gain key decision-making skills and the ability to manage complexity in a broad range of settings. This will prepare you for roles where you build teams and lead the development of the profession. 

In addition, you will: 

  • study the sciences that underpin nursing

  • develop your skills in practice placements

  • benefit from simulated practice and clinical skills teaching

  • learn with and from students of other health professions

  • become confident in embracing the technology and innovation needed to meet people's future health needs 

Practice placements will normally be undertaken in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, in a mixture of hospital and community settings across 6 trusts.

When you have successfully completed the programme, you will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Registered Nurse (Mental Health).

Support for students with a disability/health condition

We are fully committed to supporting students with disabilities who wish to join programmes of study which require the acquisition and practise of professional competencies.

We offer students personal, informal advice by telephone, email or face to face, and we are happy to discuss your specific needs prior to you applying. This could include how your specific needs may impact on your ability to meet the clinical competencies. This will not affect your application in any way, but may help you to select the right programme for you.

Please contact the admissions team for further details.

We're working hard to plan for a number of possible scenarios. This means that some of the information on this course page may be subject to change.
