Mental Health Nursing (Advanced Standing) BSc (Hons)

Many nurses may wish to undertake training for a different part of the nursing register at some point in their careers. This programme provides a conversion course for nurses who wish to move from one part of the nursing register to another.

Successful completion of the course will lead to a qualification in BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing.

Acceptance on to the programme depends on a number of factors. For example:

  • Initial field of registration.
  • A 2:2 honours degree or equivalent in Nursing
  • The date of the applicant’s original registration.
  • The availability of adequate resources to enable the applicant to join the programme with advanced standing e.g. vacancies within programmes, or placements.

The duration of the course is 2 years and our admissions team will need to be assured that you are able to meet all professional and academic requirements and will consider your previous qualifications and clinical experience.
