LSBU has been developing, delivering and evaluating courses in the field of learning disability nursing for the past 20 years. Building on this experience, and in response to best practice guidance and changing service demand, we have developed an innovative and contemporary course of study, leading to a Registered Nurses Learning Disability (RNLD) nursing qualification.
Year 1: introduction to life sciences; practice skills for nursing; professional values, ethics and law; social sciences and nursing; concepts and theories of learning disability nursing; personal effectiveness and communication. Year 2: mental wellbeing and physical health; public health and health policy; research methods and use of evidence; health and wellbeing; assessment, planning and managing care; supporting people in mainstream services. Year 3: politics of health; leadership, management and supervision; interventions for people with learning disabilities; providing support across the lifespan; practice development in learning disability nursing; complex needs and dual diagnoses.
