About this course

Mental health nursing is a rewarding career where students can make a positive difference to the lives of patients and their families. Mental health nurses are in high demand in a variety of fields within the mental health sector. This program will prepare students for specialist practice in the area of mental health nursing. It will develop a student's knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to contemporary mental health nursing practice. The program is taught by highly experienced and internationally-recognised practitioners and researchers.

The Master of Mental Health Nursing is designed to provide students with an advanced understanding of the theories, legislation, policies and standards that underpin mental health nursing. Students will develop practical skills that promote safe nursing practice and management of risk in a clinical setting.

Students will experience a variety of evidence-based interventions as well as develop a comprehensive understanding of the theoretical principles that underpin these practices. Students can undertake both structured and independent learning assignments and study in a flexible environment that respects concurrent professional commitments. The program is designed to provide self-paced structured learning and includes both a program of reading and tasks designed to integrate reading into practice.

Two courses within the program will require attendance on campus for a brief period of time.
