We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Learning Disability Nursing involve advanced study of the principles and techniques for providing support to children and adults with specific learning difficulties. Some institutions offer PGDip courses in Learning Disability Nursing as well as Masters programmes.
Related subjects include Community Health and Occupational Therapy. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject, such as Nursing, Psychology or Social Care.
Learning disability nurses improve the standard of living for a large variety of people with learning difficulties such as autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They may be employed in a range of health and social care contexts; nurses are employed according to an individual’s unique needs.
For example, you may be employed within a community setting, such as a school or children’s home. In this context, you may be employed to care for several children at once, working alongside other professionals such as teachers and social workers.
Alternatively, you may also be employed on behalf of a local authority or private care facility to support a particular family (or several families within a community) or to care for individuals with learning difficulties.
