How you learn

Watch lecturer James Turner talk about this course.

All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive.
On this course you’ll learn from enthusiastic academic staff who have a variety of clinical expertise and experience. You’ll apply your theoretical study directly to the practice of nursing on real-world healthcare challenges. You’ll develop a strong professional identity and confidence.
 
You learn through

  • practice learning (50%)
  • lectures
  • workshops
  • projects and group work
  • presentations
  • simulation
  • independent learning
  • skills rehearsal
  • technology-enhanced learning

Nurses are an integral part of a multidisciplinary team. In some modules you’ll learn and collaborate with students from other health and social care courses. This approach will help you to deliver person-centred care – with an understanding of how other professionals contribute to the person's journey through health and social care services.

Applied learning

Work placements

You’ll apply the theory you study to practice-based learning experiences. Here you’ll develop critical and ethical approaches to your practice – preparing you to become a life-long, competent professional. The experiences you’re provided with are compulsory to achieve the course’s practice-based learning outcomes.
 
These experiences will help you build your skills, confidence, creativity, resilience, integrity, and curiosity. They’ll take place in different practice-based learning environments – reflecting the range of ways services are currently delivered. This might include simulated learning and virtual placements, alongside real-world experience of services delivered face to face to service users. 
 
We’ll ensure the practice-based learning element of your course complies with the requirements of the Professional and Statutory Regulatory Body (PSRB) – which governs the mental health nursing profession. So by the end of your course, you’ll have the opportunity to show that you meet the requirements to register as a mental health nurse.
