Our BSc (Hons) Learning Disability Nursing course will develop your understanding of the needs of people with learning disabilities to enable you to work in a range of practice settings in health and social care.
This will be achieved through the combination of innovative theory and practical experiences which will be delivered using online learning units, alongside traditionally taught sessions and an electronic portfolio for practice development. With our practice partners, we offer support throughout your placements through the experienced support of mentors and an academic link tutor.
Our vision is to enable people with learning disabilities to lead healthy and valued lives. We want to make this a reality by recruiting people who are passionate about caring with learning disabilities and want to make a positive difference to their lives.
This field equips you with nursing skills to work within health and social care environments with people with learning disabilities. Studying this course will also enable you to work with a wide range of other professions that care for people with learning disabilities and their families. The practical placements that you will take throughout this course will be in a variety of health, education and social care settings with people of all ages that have a range of learning disabilities.
The course team is listed in the course handbook. All of our teaching staff are professionally and academically qualified within their field.
You will be allocated a Personal Academic Tutor who will be a professional within the nursing team and would normally remain your PAT for the three years of your study. They can offer you continued support and guidance.
