99% of mental health nursing students from Swansea University are employed in graduate level jobs within six months of graduating.
Mental health nurses help people of all ages and backgrounds to cope with life challenges. As your career develops you may choose to specialise in areas such as elderly care, crisis intervention or substance misuse. You could also become involved in education, research, or management roles.
Nursing is a unique occupation and offers you a chance to help others when they need it most. There has never been a more exciting time to join the nursing profession. The number and variety of roles is extensive. Registered nurses can work in a variety of environments including hospitals, GP surgeries, clinics, nursing and residential homes, occupational health services, voluntary organisations, armed forces and industry.
Recent graduates now work locally as ward managers, staff nurses and as community nurses.
