Join one of Scotland’s top undergraduate nursing degrees focused on mental health.
Our Mental Health Nursing course is underpinned by a philosophy of values-based and relational nursing practice. It has a strong focus on the delivery of research-informed, person-centred care.
This three-year Mental Health Nursing degree provides you with a thought-provoking and contemporary study programme, carefully crafted to equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience you need to practice as a mental health nurse.
Graduate with an honours degree after only three years and explore a fascinating range of topics, including physical health and wellbeing, anatomy, physiology and human biology. This is your journey to becoming a reflective, self-aware and person-centred practitioner.
Throughout your course you’ll enjoy a high level of support from your tutors and lecturers. They are from various clinical backgrounds, and some continue to work in practice. This is complemented by practitioners and colleagues from counselling and nursing.
This degree is recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) so you can register as a qualified nurse (mental health) when you graduate successfully.
