Course summary

Our BSc (Hons) Nursing – Learning Disability degree will help equip you with the key knowledge and skills to prepare you for a rewarding career in this field. As a Learning Disability Nurse, you will provide safe, compassionate care, keeping the best interests of you patient at heart. Our course will help you learn the technical skills and knowledge you need to be able to effectively offer this. Why study this subject? Caring for those living with learning disabilities is a challenging yet rewarding role. Your care can span across adult, children and mental health patients where learning disability nursing is at the core of the help that is needed.

Why study at Buckinghamshire New University? We've been running nursing programmes for many years and have a high rate of employability. Many of our students are employed by the trusts, hospitals or homes that they worked with during their time at the University. You will benefit from an excellent standard of teaching provided by staff from the University and practice, in partnership with our NHS Trust partners. As well as this you will be taught by lecturers who have a wide expertise in the field. Our lecturers also maintain close links with practice, ensuring that the programme is up-to-date with modern practice. You'll find the latest specialist facilities at our three campuses - from realistic manikin 'patients' to life-like simulated injuries that look incredibly realistic! Our purpose-built adult and child wards include real equipment just like hospital or community settings. We offer continuous support throughout the programme, both in the University and in practice. You will receive personal tutoring and benefit from a high level of research within the teaching team. You will also benefit from our annual one day inter-professional conference, focused on safeguarding.
