BSc(Hons)/BSc Nursing (Learning Disabilities) is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which means you can register as a learning disabilities nurse with them when you graduate. With work-based training built in, and outstanding onsite facilities, you’ll learn the theory of good nursing practice, and study the subjects that underpin it. Taught by an enthusiastic team of experienced learning disabilities nurses, you’ll develop strong inter-professional and interpersonal skills, together with a real understanding of what it means to have a learning disability or be a family carer. The course has a strong practical focus, incorporating person-centred learning, with use of our advanced, inter-professional Simulation Suite. You’ll spend about half your time on placements in NHS hospitals, or with employers in the independent health and social care sector. There’s also the chance to develop and apply your skills working abroad. You’ll have exciting career opportunities open to you in lots of areas. Learning disabilities nurses are in demand across the UK across fields such as neurology, epilepsy, acute physical and mental healthcare, as well as specialist services for people with learning disabilities. You could work in hospitals, in the community for the NHS, in the prison service, or for private or voluntary sector employers. Please note we don't accept deferred entry applications for this course and we can't accept applications from international students (overseas fee status) due to funding arrangements.
