Mental health nursing applications open

The leader of the Isle of Man's mental health nursing training programme believes the Island's course is one of the best in Britain.

Mark Haith is looking for new candidates for this year's course.

No more than six applicants are taken on each year, ensuring class sized are small, allowing those teaching the course to get to know the students better.

Those who complete the course will receiver a University of Chester degree and registration as a mental health nurse.

While candidates need 280 UCAS points to be considered, Mr Haith told MTTV that the attitude of the applicant is just as important [play audio].

Applications for the course must be submitted by February 3rd - more details are available on the Government's website.
