Theresa Parker 3rd Year Learning Disability Student Nurse 2020

Training to be a learning disability nurse has been a phenomenal experience. The versatile and transferable skills that are acquired whilst on the course are invaluable. Not only are you trained to care for service users across the lifespan but the communication skills that I have developed ensures that I am equipped to care for a variety of service users with many diverse needs. The lectures are interesting and a two-way process – involving group work, individual assignments as well as opportunities for self-directed study. Overall, I cannot praise the learning disabilities nursing course enough and would encourage anyone thinking of going into nursing to seriously give learning disability nursing real consideration. It is life-changing and a privilege to be involved with such service users.
