The Scottish Government and key stakeholders are working in partnership to develop the National Model to provide excellent Pre-Registration Learning Disability Nursing programmes that are accessible to prospective student nurses across Scotland. GCU and ENU have dedicated Clinical Academics who work with colleges and NHS Boards to improve routes into the RNLD programme.
The National Model has successfully increased the number and diversity of practice placements available across Scotland. Student placements can be urban or rural; in a diverse range of clinical practice settings including children’s services, prison health care, learning disability assessment and treatment services and Community Learning Disability Nursing.
