UCC TO INTRODUCE MASTER’S DEGREE IN MENTAL HEALTH NURSING

Published on

Career progression in mental health nursing has been very difficult in Ghana especially if one wants to continue the path of mental health nursing. Until few years ago, the highest one could attain was a diploma in mental health nursing. This resulted in many psychiatric nurses taking alternative career path in career progression by doing BSc Nursing and other related nursing degrees. With the introduction of BSc Mental Health Nursing, a lot of psychiatric nurses have been able to maintain their path in mental health nursing. Even for some who undertook General Nursing Degrees and other related nursing degrees have retaken the BSc Mental Health Nursing.
