Nursing with Registration (Learning Disability) BSc (Hons)
This rewarding field of work helps support the wellbeing and social inclusion of people with learning disabilities. Career opportunities are diverse – you can work in the community, inpatient services, specialist and behavioural teams or in primary care supporting GP practices.
Strong links with service providers across the region and integrated placements help you put theory into practice, so you can build on your knowledge, skills and confidence to work across multiple settings and with a diverse range of patients.
Traditionally a smaller cohort than the other fields of practice, you will be taught by expert practitioners and benefit from their experiences, real-life examples and teaching that links back to practice. The support doesn’t stop there – you will be guided, supervised and assessed by practice and academic staff while on placement.
You will also have the opportunity to work with students from other health and social care courses to deliver person-centred care and understand the impact of allied health professions on the patient journey.
