Having recently retired from a career in Learning Disability Nursing it gives me the
opportunity to look back and reflect on an exciting career.
As a young person entering a nursing career at the age of eighteen I could not have
imagined the exciting career before me. The privilege of working alongside and supporting
people with a learning disability, the opportunity to be part of developing services which had
the potential to make people's lives better and finally to follow my dreams and become a
University Lecturer developing the next generation of Learning Disability Nurses. Careers in
nursing are many and varied.
If you are looking to have a career working with people and making their lives just that little
bit better and at the same time developing yourself a professional career think about if
learning disability nursing is for you. A career that can lead to working with people in a
range of settings, developing a career in managing and developing services or, like me a
career in teaching and research.
I can promise you a fast-moving rewarding career where no two days are the same and you will look back and say I made a little difference in people's lives. I have had my chance and I am proud of my achievements. What about you? Are you up for the challenge?
If you think this may be the career for you, there are still spaces available to study
BSc (hons) Nursing: Learning Disabilities at University of South Wales for September 2018.
