Learning Disability Nursing courses

Name School of Health and Social Care, Oxford Brookes University, Oxford.
Sector Education - Nursing Courses for staff
Service Description We offer three year programmes at diploma or degree level, run in collaboration with Oxfordshire Learning Disability (NHS) Trust,that will equip you with the up-to-date knowledge and skills needed for this challenging but highly rewarding field of nursing. You will have the opportunity to work with children and adults with learning disability in their home, school or working environment. Learning disability nursing requires a high level of skill and resourcefulness. Its objective is the enablement of people who have a learning disability, so that they can participate fully in all aspects of community life. The programme is based on the principle that all people have physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs and are therefore unique and dynamic individuals with inherent potential for growth and development.Studying learning disability nursing will introduce you to a range of issues related to the provision of health and social care services for people with a learning disability. Learning disability nurses straddle the health and social care divide, which is reflected in the curriculum. The first year provides an introduction to human physiology and anatomy, and a foundation in important aspects of learning disability nursing. You will also start to acquire the professional skills you will need in an inter-professional context. Advanced modules in Years 2 and 3 build on this foundation and cover a range of topics including physical and mental health needs, advocacy, choice, therapeutic relationships and interventions, social policy, cultural issues, social policy, diversity and inclusion, law and ethics, management and transitions to professional practice. Throughout the programme the interprofessional and shared modules enable you to study alongside students from other nursing specialisms, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, midwifery, paramedics and social work courses.
