Course summary

Become a registered nurse within a changing health and social care arena by understanding the holistic care needs of those with a learning disability.

Course overview

A key role of the learning disability nurse is to work in partnership with people with learning disabilities of all ages to maintain their holistic health and wellbeing and to live their lives as fully and independently as possible. Learning disability nurses help and support individuals and their families across the age continuum, from birth until death, in a wide variety of settings, promoting person centred care and empowering people to make choices, take risks, realise their aspirations and fulfil their potential. In addition, as a nurse for the future the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) expect you to provide care for people from all fields of nursing, so we will also enhance your knowledge and skills in relation to caring for adults (including older people), those with mental health conditions and children.
