Course content

This course is for students who already have a degree in any subject and are looking for progression and further challenges which can be fulfilled by undertaking a rewarding and lifelong career within the nursing profession.

For those starting in September 2018 a new postgraduate pre-registration scholarship, worth £4,450, is available to those who display either clinical or academic excellence.

City is the first institution to offer an MSc of this kind, crossing both the adult and mental health nursing specialisms. The course was designed to meet the need of the healthcare sector and the ambitions of many nurses to be able to fully support their patients, both physically and mentally.

The MSc in Adult and Mental Health Nursing prepares you for a rewarding career at the forefront of modern healthcare. You will graduate as a nurse eligible to register with the NMC as an adult and mental health nurse, leaving you equipped to support the delivery of quality healthcare in a contemporary health service.

Mental illness has a huge impact on the physical health of an individual. People with mental health conditions are at a higher risk of experiencing physical health problems, such as diabetes and heart conditions. In addition, people with long-term physical health conditions are more likely to suffer from a mental health issue, particularly depression. There is a need to develop a nursing workforce that is fit for the current demands of healthcare in the UK.

This Masters programme, where you will be eligible to apply for registration with the NMC as a registered nurse in the mental health and adult fields of nursing, will provide you with the opportunity to meet this demand.
