This is an exciting time to actively contribute to new pathways developed for the present and “future nurse” education and beyond registration.

You will join a passionate and dedicated team, who are committed to enhancing the health and social wellbeing of people with a learning disability and their carers. The Learning Disability Nursing Team is part of the wider nursing family and aims to engage and transform the lives of whom we support.

The Department of Nursing and Midwifery success is built upon learning activities and opportunities that enhance the student experience and journey through innovative teaching, learning and assessment strategies.

It is anticipated you will be passionate, motivated and have a strong contemporary clinical practice background and experience in teaching and assessment in higher education or clinical practice. Knowledge of the contemporary theories and concepts that underpin Learning Disability Nursing practice as well as the wider nursing fields is essential. You must be registered and practising as a Learning Disability Nurse and possess strong evidence of continued professional development in health/education related subjects. In return, you can look forward to joining a thriving academic community.
