At Keele University, weâre different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. Weâre proud to be âUniversity of the Year for Student Experienceâ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because itâs more than green and lovely, itâs a place of research and academic excellence too.
This course will enable you to become a confident and competent learning disability nurse. You will gain practical placement experience to equip you with all of the skills required to support individuals with a learning disability to lead a healthy and valued life.
The philosophy of care and support for people with learning disabilities is one of partnership in which the nurse works alongside the person to support them to lead a healthy and valued lifestyle and to exercise their rights as members of society.
The course at Keele helps students to learn about and apply this philosophy in the many different services for people with learning disabilities. The course will also equip you with the appropriate knowledge and skills to work with people with learning disabilities who have more complex and specialist needs. Clinical skills are an essential part of the course and students have access to expert staff in the Clinical Skills Laboratory to help develop and assess their practice.
The University also provides excellent support through its personal tutor system. Wider benefits of enrolling on our courses include; experienced student support, excellent IT and library facilities, preparation for a range of roles as a professional learning disability nurse and a range of practice based experience whilst you study.
Placements are designed to complement your theoretical and classroom based work and youâll be supported by a team of experienced mentors. This will prepare you for a career in learning disability nursing in a range of settings.
