Learning Disability Nursing | Bachelor's degree | Health & Well-Being | On Campus | 3 years | Bangor University | United Kingdom
This course offers the opportunity to achieve a qualification that will enable you to enter a fulfilling career working with children or adults who are living with learning disabilities and who need the support of a learning disability nurse. Learning disability nurses can be seen working in different settings as well as for a range of different employers which include the NHS and independent sector. Learning disability nurses often contribute to multi-professional working, and are concerned with their clients’ health in the widest context. They help clients of all ages to live their lives as fully and independently as possible, whilst respecting their rights and dignity. Some of the course time will be spent on placement, in a range of different settings. Placements are designed to give you the experience of working with clients and service users under the supervision of registered nurses and others. There is a field specific focus to the program from year 1, along with certain common modules.
The course is appropriate for careers working with people of all ages facing physical and mental health challenges or living with learning disabilities who need professional nursing care. Nursing offers a range of interesting and rewarding careers in healthcare.
The taught elements of this course are held at both the Bangor & Wrexham Archimedes Centre campuses. Students can choose which location they wish to apply for.
Unfortunately as this course is funded by the NHS and students have to have placements in the local NHS Health Board we are unable to accept applications from overseas (Non EU) students.
