Learning Disability Nursing at University of Chester - UCAS

Course summary

Become a registered nurse within a changing health and social care arena by understanding the holistic care needs of those with a learning disability, and gain the skills to meet current and future healthcare demands. A key role of the learning disability nurse is to work in partnership with people with learning disabilities of all ages to maintain their holistic health and wellbeing and to live their lives as fully and independently as possible. Learning disability nurses help and support individuals and their families across the age continuum, from birth until death, in a wide variety of settings, promoting person centred care and empowering people to make choices, take risks, realise their aspirations and fulfil their potential. As a nurse for the future, the Nursing and Midwifery Council expect you to provide care for people from all fields of nursing, so we will also enhance your knowledge and skills in relation to caring for adults, those with mental health conditions and children. Practical learning in our state-of-the-art skills labs, supported by key theoretical knowledge, will prepare you for hospital placements during your course, ensuring you gain real, hands-on experience. The course is delivered by experienced registered nurses who have expertise in both teaching and research, all four fields of nursing, and a variety of clinical specialities, including community nursing, forensic, residential services and respite care. The team work closely with providers, ensuring that the course remains contemporary, and are committed to supporting students to realise their potential. There are a number of extracurricular activities you can take part in such as the Nursing Society and the Student Empowerment Group.
