ABOUT

Course overview

Study level: Postgraduate

This accredited Learning Disabilities Nursing (Pre-registration) MSc course offers graduates from a range of backgrounds the opportunity to enter the Learning Disabilities Nursing profession in two years.

You will explore the role of people with learning disabilities and the valued contribution that they make as equal citizens, examining the support that you can provide to ensure that their lives are valued and that they are given the best possible opportunities to live their best lives.

  • The course aims to ensure that knowledge and skills acquisition will allow you to provide effective support for individuals with learning disabilities, including profound and multiple disabilities within healthcare and educational settings.
  • You will be enabled to apply a wide range of creative interventions to facilitate quality care in varying settings, allowing service users to experience valued and fulfilled lives across their lifespan.
  • This two-year postgraduate course leads to eligibility to register as a Learning Disabilities Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (additional costs may apply).

Why you should study this course

This innovative programme is designed to equip you with the hands-on clinical and care skills to prepare you to practise autonomously and compassionately. You will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to provide effective person-centred approaches, and to build effective therapeutic relationships across the lifespan, with the individuals who you support as well as their families, carers and social groups.

  • The course is aimed at individuals with a prior undergraduate degree and evidence of experience in health and social care. Previous undergraduate degrees may include (but are not limited to) health-related disciplines, psychology, criminology or sociology degrees. Those with non-health-related degrees must demonstrate extensive experience in the clinical health and social care sector. It is also suitable for existing nurses looking for dual qualification.
  • Designed to challenge you to develop high standards of person-centred care, skills in coordinating complex care, clinical, legal and ethical decision-making, leadership and mentoring, the course is complemented by research and evidence-informed practice and independent project work which is focused on, and promotes, service improvement.
  • You will have the opportunity to study and develop specialist skills in communication, comprehensive health assessment, equality and diversity, and issues related to professional practice. This includes the study of complex health needs, profound and multiple needs, care packages and therapeutic approaches to service users with learning disabilities.
  • The course will facilitate you to lead in the implementation and coordination of positive behavioural approaches, adapted mental and physical health interventions and additional clinical specialism including the provision of care in forensic and secure environments. You will be equipped with the necessary theory-practice skills in trans- and multi-disciplinary assessment, which is at the core of best practice. This course requires individuals with excellent communication skills and a person-centred and empathetic approach to those with healthcare needs.
  • Clinical placements2 are integral to the Learning Disabilities Nursing MSc, accounting for 50% of the course. This includes clinical practice in a range of healthcare settings (organised by the university) and practice learning with local practice partners. Learning Disabilities Nurses work in collaboration with individuals with learning disabilities and with a range of other health professionals to provide a multidisciplinary approach to person-centred care. You will complete placements across four practice modules in a variety of settings such as community teams, respite care, secure service provision, autism services and other services relevant to learning disabilities nursing. Practice assessment is divided into three parts which build on proficiencies required to become autonomous nurse practitioners.
  • Throughout the course you will have the opportunity to study a wide range of subjects, including additional physical and mental health needs in people with learning disabilities, adapted therapeutic approaches, forensic issues in the learning disabled population, positive approaches to behaviour management and other contemporary issues. Your studies will focus on the needs of populations, individuals, related health and nursing services with an emphasis on using research to enhance and improve services for people with Learning Disabilities. You will be encouraged to act as a champion for the service users you work with and support their diverse needs.
  • You will study in the multi-million-pound Alison Gingell Building, which provides facilities4 for teaching and research, featuring an operating theatre, mock wards, critical care settings, community housing and other real life nursing environments relevant to practice.
  • Upon successful completion, in addition to eligibility for NMC registration, you will also graduate with a Chartered Management Institute (CMI)* accredited1 qualification in Global Professional Development and have the opportunity to apply to become a member of the CMI.
