MSc Nursing (Psychosocial Interventions in Mental Health Care) (FT)

MSc Nursing (Psychosocial Interventions in Mental Health Care) (FT)

Introduction

The overall aim of the Master of Science in Nursing (Psychosocial Interventions in Mental Health Care) is to provide registered nurses with the opportunity to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills to implement evidence-based psychosocial interventions across a range of mental health settings. It is well established that evidence-based psychosocial interventions support service-user recovery. Educating nurses to facilitate such interventions enhances their therapeutic role in service delivery. This programme is specifically designed to enhance nurses' learning and knowledge of theoretical models underpinning psychosocial interventions. It aims to develop nurses' skills to facilitate assessment and evidence-based psychosocial interventions that support and promote a recovery model of care. The programme also facilitates the development of competencies in preparation for specialist roles. Successful completion of year one of the Masters programme (Graduate Diploma award) will provide students with the academic qualifications required to be considered eligible for clinical nurse specialist posts. The MSc award on successful completion of year 2, will provide students with the academic qualifications required to be considered eligible for advanced nursing practice posts.
