GD-FMHN Postgraduate Online Send me a link to this course
The Graduate Certificate in Forensic Mental Health Nursing (GC-FMHN) and the Graduate Diploma of Forensic Mental Health Nursing form part of the broad suite of courses in forensic psychology and forensic mental health at Swinburne University of Technology. In particular, the units in the diploma form part of the subjects that lead to the Master of Forensic Behavioural Science (MA-FBS). Graduates will acquire in-depth knowledge and skills required to work effectively in forensic mental health nursing, including an understanding of legal and correctional systems, advanced instruction in the complex systemic and individual mental health factors that influence offending behaviour, and how to work effectively with challenging patients and behaviours. This course is offered through the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science at Swinburne, in collaboration with the Victorian Institute of Forensic Mental Health (Forensicare).
