Generalist nurses should be able to apply mental health knowledge to the comprehensive care of the human being and to understand when patients need specialized support from mental health and psychiatric nurses. Therefore, it is important to understand how this knowledge can be integrated into the curricula of generalist nurses. This article aims to describe the process of designing and planning how BSN students learn about Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing in Coimbra, Portugal, to characterize the course units on mental health and psychiatric nursing in this BSN curriculum, and to analyze their contribution to the acquisition of generalist nurses’ skills.

Keywords : Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing; Nursing Education; Nursing Curriculum.
