Course content

The programme is comprised of six theory/ practice modules. In all modules there is an emphasis on exploring the relevance of module content to practice. While undertaking the programme, students will continue to work in their own practice setting. Practice assignments are structured so as to allow students to explore "new" knowledge in the reality of their practice, thus providing them with an opportunity to integrate theory and practice.
This programme aims to equip practitioners with the necessary knowledge and skills to help advance mental health nursing, and put the service user at the centre of service delivery.
