Program Overview

If you're a highly motivated graduate with care experience who wishes to become a registered learning disability nurse and gain an MSc in an accelerated two year timeframe, the MSc Nursing graduate entry programme is perfect for you.

People with learning disabilities are amongst one of the most socially excluded and vulnerable groups in the UK today. To overcome these barriers and challenges, the Learning Disability (LD) nurse has a vast range of skills to utilise in supporting individuals with learning disabilities to access services for which they are entitled.  LD nurses can comprehensively assess health and social care needs; provide interventions to maintain and improve health and promote wellbeing; provide advice, education and support to people and their carers throughout their care journey.  They also enable equality of access and outcomes within health and social care services; provide education and support to promote healthy lifestyle and choices; and act to safeguard and protect the rights of people with learning disabilities.
