Jobs in Mental health Nursing are growing – and you don’t need to have done a degree in Nursing. You don’t need to be a woman either!



 

The growing need for mental health professionals continues and the NHS will be increasing the number of job opportunities in mental health by 20,000 by 2020.  Starting an accelerated course as a   graduate in September could be your next step if you are interested in making a difference to people’s lives in terms of mental health. Universities across the country still have places available for courses, which are around 2 years long. You’ll need to have a relevant degree such as Psychology – but check with individual institutions as some universities may be more flexible about subject areas.

“The biggest shame of all would be to overlook such a fantastic career opportunity, with all its life-changing experiences.”

But their are lots of interesting opportunities in many different teams! Most vacancies are advertised here. Some roles may want more experience than you have, but experience can include a wide range of activities including volunteering, so why not take a look?Working for a university can also include reduced costs for taking a Masters, if this interests you. Check the policy of the university in advance.
