MMHNMaster of Mental Health Nursing

Why choose this course?

This demanding route is designed to meet the needs of highly motivated graduates, looking to rapidly advance their career within the nursing profession. This course has been closely developed with local Trust partners to reflect the increasing and rapidly changing requirements in patient care provision. The MMHN (PG) will create autonomous nurses with the clinical and leadership skills to synthesise data that will optimise the best possible patient care for people with mental illness.

The course will be split 50% in a clinical practice environment and 50% in academic setting of the University. The MMHN (PG) leads to professional registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), as well as a Master’s degree. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to practice as a Registered Nurse in the field of Mental Health Nursing.

What happens on the course?

The two year full time course will focus on the acquisition of nursing skills in order to manage safe effective evidence based care to patients, through a range of relevant clinical placements, whilst undertaking the shift patterns of professional nurses. Students will be supported by appropriately qualified and inspirational mentors. This will facilitate the development of nurses that have advanced caring skills and the ability to improve quality and drive health care services.

The development of complex mental health nursing practice will be acquired from a variety of community and acute settings reflecting the key drivers within the health sector. Academic mastery will be cultivated through problem based learning approaches with opportunities for skills simulation in our laboratories. Learning will be supported by academic experts and researchers in the field of nursing and interprofessional learning with other healthcare disciplines. This course would also be suitable for existing graduate NMC registrants wishing to undertake a 2nd registration at Masters Level in the field of mental health nursing.

Students wishing to undertake this course will be self-funding or apply for a student loan.

Why Wolverhampton?

Within the philosophy of the MoN programme, we actively seek and encourage our clinical partners and experts to input directly into the student teaching experience. Within the teaching programme the Recovery Near You team deliver for us an excellent learning opportunity for our MoN students focussing on the issues around drug and alcohol misuse, addiction, psychological, physical, social and criminal consequences of these behaviours and the support and interventions they offer. Organised by Diane Smith from the RNY service, the students are exposed to a two day structure delivered by a variety of clinical specialists within the team, including: Consultant Psychiatrist, Clinical Nurse Specialists and Service Users. This not only ensures that all of the students (Mental Health and Adult) are exposed to this specialist area, it also strengthens the important links and constructs between theoretical knowledge and clinical practice.
