Nursing (Learning Disabilities) - University of the West of England

Nursing is a challenging but rewarding career that’ll change lives, including your own. Learning disabilities nurses support children, adults and their families, in a creative, flexible manner, in their own homes, communities and specialist services. You’ll play you part in identifying and meeting people’s health and wellbeing needs, and improving healthcare, social inclusion and quality of life. BSc(Hons) Learning Disabilities Nursing is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which means you’ll gain both a nursing degree and a professional qualification while studying with us. Working with a passionate, enthusiastic, skilled and supportive team, your learning will be enriched by the very latest best practice. The course is split 50% theory and 50% practice, and you’ll have access to outstanding facilities including our Skills Simulation Suite (https://www1.uwe.ac.uk/whyuwe/fantasticfacilities/skillssimulationsuite.aspx). Based at Glenside Campus, you’ll learn alongside other students from other health and social care courses, and develop essential people skills. There's also the opportunity to develop and apply your skills working abroad, and throughout the UK. Learning disabilities nurses are in demand across the UK, in the NHS, private and voluntary sector.
