Mental Health Nursing

Institution: Australian Catholic University



Our suite of mental health nursing programs for registered nurses develops graduates with knowledge and skills at a specialist and advanced level.

Registered nurses who successfully complete either the Graduate Diploma of Mental Health Nursing or the Master of Mental Health Nursing will meet the qualification criteria of the Australian College of Mental Health Nurses Credential for Practice Program and receive a formal postgraduate mental health qualification. With a shift in focus from acute inpatient treatment to recovery-orientated, trauma-informed care, philosophy and content, and with a specified unit in cognitive behavioural therapy, this suite of programs prepares you to respond to the needs of both consumers and carers alike.
