Teaching

  • SHN3061 Advancing Professional Nursing Practice (Mental Health)

    The aim of this module is to enable mental health nursing students to develop the knowledge and skills to evaluate and advance professional nursing practice. It will help them to identify areas for improvement and help identify any potential limitations within the context of current policy and organisational cultures. The module will enable the student to develop their own potential, advancing their own practice whilst evaluating the impact on self, service users and other professionals.
