96% student satisfaction

NSS-LD nursing 2017

96% of our Learning Disabilities Nursing students were satisfied with their course (National Student Satisfaction Survey 2017).

The survey covers all aspects of the undergraduate experience ranging from the quality of teaching, feedback from assessments and the opportunity to develop personal skills to boost future employment prospects.

"The Learning Disability Nurse lecturing team are passionate about this specialist field of nursing, as we are all experienced clinicians who have worked in various roles with this vulnerable client group," said Rachel Morgan, specialist lead for learning disability nursing.

"We are both privileged and proud to be preparing our future workforce of Registered Nurse Learning Disabilities (RNLDs), as well as those from other fields of nursing practice, to continually improve service provision for people with learning disabilities.

We are proud to be part of the wider nursing family and continuously strive to collaborate with our colleagues from other fields of practice, as working in partnership helps achieve best outcomes for our clients/patients.

We find that that students appreciate the pastoral support and academic supervision we offer, as this helps them to achieve their goals and aspirations.

As this nursing course attracts mature applicants as well as those just leaving sixth form/college, the relationships we develop with our students over the three years really helps to support them through their time at university.

It’s wonderful to be part of a student’s journey of development to acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence to go out into the nursing world and really make a difference."
