Course description

CAO COURSE CODE: CK720 One in four people experience mental health problems at some time in their life. Psychiatric nurses form part of a group of health professionals who support people to understand such experiences, guide them to cope with such experiences, and where possible, assist them in their recovery. This is done through what is generally referred to as the development of therapeutic relationships which forms the essence of a psychiatric nurse’s skills, knowledge and attitude. The ability to develop such relationships runs as a core theme throughout the programme.
