As mental health awareness becomes increasingly prevalent in society, we prepare students to work with individuals of all ages, with a range of mental health experiences, in diverse settings. You will develop strong communication skills which will be fostered throughout the programme by rehearsal in the classroom and feedback from mentors in placements to prepare you for this demanding role.
Student nurses are eligible to receive an annual grant of at least £5,000 to help cover their living costs. Additional financial grants are also available for eligible students - more information and full eligibility criteria can be found here.
