This is the perfect mental health nursing conversion course. We’ve known many RGNs who, in becoming a mental health nurse, feel a sense of renewed passion for their career. For many, it’s an opportunity to treat mental health issues that often co-exist with other health conditions.
Become a CNS or ANP in Mental Health

There is an acute global shortage of registered mental health nurses (RMNs) and this results in more jobs, better packages and a high level of job security. It is a highly challenging career and you are likely to be caring for the most vulnerable in society with a range of conditions.
