Course Overview Our Nursing with Registered Nurse (Learning Disabilities) course will enable you to develop the core skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours that are essential when you’re caring for people with learning disabilities. Why study with us
- As a UK student on this programme you'll be eligible for a £6,000 NHS Learning Support Fund. This doesn’t have to be paid back after finishing your degree.
- The curriculum addresses National Benchmarks and is split between 50% theoretical study - including time spent in small groups with other students who’ve chosen the same field of nursing as you - and 50% practical clinical experience.
- The School is amongst one of the first educational providers within the North West region. We ensure that you are adequately supported within your clinical experiences by allocating lecturers to all the clinical placements you will access.
- We have been awarded the highest independent quality assessment by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education for the design, content and management of our curricula, student achievement and standards of teaching.
- For clinical placement experiences, you’ll be allocated to one of several NHS Trusts within the Central Lancashire or Cumbria region as your base depending on which campus you have applied for. From there, you will gain experience in a range of placement areas.
- You’ll undertake practical work experience placements, as well as spend time developing practical skills in our clinical skills labs using clinical patient simulators (manikins) and simulation model trainers.
- Opportunities exist for an international experience by taking advantage of the University’s extensive links in Europe and overseas. You can also take advantage of other voluntary international experiences in America, Oman, Tanzania and Finland.
