Registered Mental Health Nurse

Working as a Registered Mental Health Nurse

Do you have the ability to work calmly across various high-pressure environments, drawing on your quick-thinking abilities as well as your clinical knowledge and understanding? Are you in your element when writing care plans, performing assessments and making referrals, alongside your clinical care tasks? If you’re looking for a role that will continuously challenge you to develop and consolidate your skills, then you could find working as a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN) at Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) a rewarding and fulfilling career path.

Mental health can be an extremely rewarding field to specialise in. You’ll be helping to break the stigma around mental health, whilst at the same time supporting people with managing and overcoming conditions that can sometimes prevent them from living the lives they want. As an RMN, you will work closely with a wider team of colleagues comprising of doctors, therapists, psychiatrists and social workers.

 

What does the role of an RMN at MPFT entail?

Mental Health Nurses are responsible for supporting and facilitating proper management of, or recovery from, mental illnesses. Each day is different, and you could support patients with things such as:

  • Helping to manage diets and fluids intake
  • Personal care
  • Ensuring patients are taking their medications
  • Encouraging patients to prioritise their mental wellbeing
  • Taking blood samples and assisting doctors in the care of new admissions
  • Participating in safeguarding meetings to ensure vulnerable patients are properly managed

Once you’re a practicing RMN, you’ll have plenty of options for the future of your career. You may choose to specialise in a particular area, such as child and adolescent mental health, women’s mental health, or transcultural psychiatry, which looks at the impact of cultural and ethnic factors on mental health and its treatment.

There are also lots of opportunities to progress into management positions with RMN experience, such as a modern Matron or Clinical Team Leader.

Applying to be an RMN at MPFT

Essential requirements:

  • You are a Registered Nurse
  • You have at least two years’ post-graduate experience and six months’ NHS experience within the last three years
  • You will need to pass an enhanced background check

Other key skills required for this role:

Mental Health Nurses often find themselves in challenging and emotional situations, so you’ll need a number of key skills and traits to help you succeed:

  • Able to remain calm and think clearly and quickly under pressure
  • An excellent communicator
  • Able to build strong connections with patients and their families
  • Empathetic and non-judgemental
  • A great problem solver
  • Keen observational skills
  • Ability to work with other clinical and non-clinical staff
