About this course

With this 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.

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.

You will also gain high-level 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.
