93% student satisfaction

NSS MentalHealthNursing 2017

93% of our Mental Health Nursing students were satisfied with their course (National Student Satisfaction Survey 2017).

The survey covers all aspects of the undergraduate experience ranging from the quality of teaching, feedback from assessments and the opportunity to develop personal skills to boost future employment prospects.

 "The Mental Health lecturing team are passionate about this specialist field of nursing, and value both the people that we have nursed, and all students who embark on the BN (Hons) Mental Health," said Mark James, specialist lead for mental health nursing.

"The team are all experienced clinicians, many of whom have had specialist training in specific interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and developing initiatives, for example, for individuals diagnosed with Dementia and their carers. 

We are proud to be preparing our future Registered Mental Health Nurses, as well as those from other fields of nursing practice, to continually improve service provision and to reduce the stigma associated with mental health problems still experienced by many people.

We continually collaborate with our colleagues from other fields of practice, and with colleagues working in clinical practice to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients/patients.

We strongly believe in the importance of the helping relationship and find that students value the pastoral support, guidance, and academic supervision that is offered to all Mental Health Nursing students during their three years of study at the University of South Wales.

There are few things more satisfying than seeing a compassionate and caring person acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and confidence to enter into their eventual areas of practice, and make a difference for many people who experience mental health problems."
