Have you ever thought about a career in Learning Disability Nursing?
Or have you faced the following?
- Didn’t know we existed?
- Or been put off by negative press from others?
- Do you have the tenacity to stand up and be counted when it really matters?
- Do you value people equally?
- Do you want to make sure people with a learning disability and their families get what you and I take for granted?
We might just have the career option for you!
