Course details
Course UCAS code: B761
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
**This course has September and January intakes.** **Summary**: All services offered to people with learning disabilities should be person-centred. This means that people with learning disabilities should be involved in issues which affect their lives, should expect services to be responsive to individual needs, and should have equal rights and opportunities in society. This degree course gives you the foundations for a rewarding career in learning disabilities nursing. As a learning disabilities nurse, you can make a real difference to the lives of patients and their families. **Course details**: Working as a learning disabilities nurse you have the opportunity to help people with learning disabilities live their lives in the way they choose and provide support and guidance with some of the everyday things that we might take for granted. You assist the person with learning disabilities with all aspects of their lives including health and social care, education, employment, leisure and recreation. You will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to works in diverse settings and develop a leadership role within integrated care teams. To be a nurse and to share people’s healthcare experiences, in sometimes very difficult and emotional times, is a privilege. The public places high expectations and levels of trust upon nurses, and the course develops practitioners who can meet these expectations. It is hard work and challenging. Therefore to work within the healthcare sector it is essential that you are able to demonstrate the core values embedded within the NHS Constitution: working together for patients, respect and dignity, commitment to quality of care, compassion, improving lives and everyone counts. Throughout the course, as part of the placement experience, you will be required to participate in a shift pattern rota or work weekends. **After the course**: On successful completion of the course you will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council on the nurses' part of the Professional Register (Learning Disabilities Nursing). A diverse range of career opportunities are available within the NHS and private sectors in the UK and overseas. This course provides a stepping stone from which you can develop your expertise in the fields of nursing practice, leadership, research, education and consultancy.

Assessment Methods:
50% of the learning time is spent engaging in University or self-managed learning activities (theory) and 50% of the time is spent within placement allocations (practice). The teaching week during theory/study blocks is Monday to Friday and may involve some evening sessions. During practice allocations you are required to complete the shift patterns allocated to you by your mentor or supervisor. These will include early starts (for example a shift may start at 7.00am and finish at 8.00pm), night duty and weekend shifts. The structure and sequencing of University and placement-based learning means that holidays are fixed - it is not possible to take holidays outside of the set dates. Assessments are varied and reflect module outcomes. They include written assignments, examinations, case studies and presentations. You are also assessed in practice through a portfolio of evidence each year.

I’m proud to study at Teesside, it’s a great university that’s really passionate about providing the best teaching and support for it’s students. I feel really well looked after and supported by my teachers, who helped me to improve my expression and intellect, as well as a responsive SU who do a lot for students, as well as throwing a load of great events and coordinating some amazing societies. There are loads of sporting activities on offer, and Middlesbrough has loads of things to do, with loads of great clubs and nights out in town.
