CAREER DESTINATION

MENTAL HEALTH NURSE

CALMING, SUPPORTING AND NURSING MENTAL HEALTH PATIENTS. Every mental health nurse provides unequalled support for mental health patients. They play a key part in the alleviation of symptoms via the administration of medicine and the encouraging of participation in social activities. Mental Health Nurses can often have backgrounds in Psychology, Social Work and Life Sciences but it is common for graduates to have completed a degree in Mental Health Nursing. With further study and experience, you could become an advanced nurse practitioner (ANP), clinical nurse specialist (CNS) or nurse consultant.

COMPASS POINTS. As with other career destinations in mental health, a grounding or a degree in psychology, albeit a Masters or Bachelors, is definitely an advantage. It is vital that you gain SEN, SEMH, or specific mental health experience that will allow you to add to your theoretical experiences and knowledge. Experience can be gained as ever in a voluntary capacity - this could be as a counselling volunteer or working in a care facility or even within an outreach program sponsored by a government agency or social service. Additional experience can also be gained in an Alternative Medical Provision where you can liaise with other professionals in this field.
