Learning Disabilities Nursing

Professional Nursing does not occur in isolation. This is recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council which set the standards and outcomes for this nursing programme. Many of these outcomes apply to all nurses while some are specific to fields of practice. Many people are cared for informally, by friends, family members or other carers. At times people become patients or service users and receive health services from a wide range of health professionals including nurses, physiotherapist, social workers, and midwives, paramedics, operating department practitioners, occupational therapists, dieticians and doctors. This course embraces collaborative learning with opportunities to learn in both theory and practice with students from a range of related professions. The course actively engages with people with learning disabilities. A high level of commitment to learning from service users is reflected in the direct involvement in many aspects of the curriculum. The course plan is specifically designed to meet UK Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) standards of competency for registration within this field of practice. On successful completion of this course you will be eligible to apply for registration with the NMC. If you choose this course you will benefit from: a course that meets the professional outcomes that are identified by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as essential prerequisites for registration as a Learning Disability Nurse; clear focus on learning disability complemented with significant insights into mental health, adult and children and young people’s complex care; well-supported practice placements to enhance your theoretical learning with real-world experience that prepares you for your future career.
