As with many of the specialist nursing disciplines, the Learning Disability Nurse job involves a wide range of nursing skills and interaction between care providers.|
Many care recievers have mental and physical health conditions and each person may have single or multiple issues that need to be assessd and catered for. The reason for this approach is to maintain and/or improve the mental health or educational learning abilities of the person with learning disabilities.
Learning Disability Nurses not only have to provide care in a range of settings (community, residential, schools, care homes and patients homes), they must also liaise with a range of care providers including doctors, pyschologists, teachers, social workers, care workers and occupational therapists.
Learning Disability Nurses are required to support patients with learning disabilities in both a care setting and during leisure activities, which means a Learning Disabilities Nurse can have a very rewarding job with a range of attributes allowing the indvidual nurse to provide care in a number of settings.
