They work in a variety of specialist settings and within generic services to provide support.Our degree provides you with the skills to meet the needs of people with learning disabilities, including those with complex needs. You will experience practice-based learning in the community with patients, families and carers in south-east London and Kent.We prepare you to apply for registration as a learning disabilities nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Our course helps you achieve the outcomes identified in the NMC Realising Professionalism: Standards for education and training, Part 3 (2018) and Future Nurse: Proficiencies for registered nurses (2018).All nursing students on courses from September 2020 will benefit from guaranteed, additional support of at least £5,000 a year, which they will not need to pay back. See more information on the following link: https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/nhs-learning-support-fund**What you should know about this course:*** Nursing and Midwifery at Greenwich is number one in London for satisfaction with teaching (Guardian League Tables 2021).* Our highly qualified staff are both teachers and researchers, giving you access to a talented pool of educators.* You will be placed in a NHS trust for the three-year course, although you will have the opportunity to change your placement area for part of Year 3.* We are currently developing a brand-new simulation suite where you will be able to practice and develop your skills and knowledge in a safe environment.* Nursing students will benefit from guaranteed, additional support of at least £5,000 a year to help with living costs."Like all universities, the University of Greenwich must develop our pre-registration nursing and midwifery courses in line with the requirements as stated in the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (2018) standards framework for nursing and midwifery education. These standards underpin all education for nurses, midwives and nursing associates to ensure courses reflect the safety and needs of the public, the profession and our students. To do this we have a schedule of programme re-approvals, and this course and the module content is currently subject to this review process. We anticipate this to be finalised by Jan 2021 and will consult you of any further changes should they arise before the start date.”
