Learning disability nursing offers a unique and rewarding career which often provides you with the privilege of entering fully into the lives of people with a learning disability. Commonly nurses are working over time periods to enhance the health, well-being and social inclusion of people with a learning disability by improving or maintaining their physical and mental health, reducing barriers to their special needs and supporting them to achieve a life which is as fulfilling as possible.
Learning disability nurses support people with learning disabilities who often have a range of complex developmental, physical, psychological and mental health needs. As a learning disabilities nurse you will work in partnership with service users, their families / carers and other health and social care professionals. You will help identify and create ways to support a range of health and developmental needs in order that people with a learning disability of all ages may live their lives as fully and independently as possible.
