Maintaining student enrolment after the removal of bursaries


I agree that learning disability nursing is highly important. There are many programmes which are struggling to recruit at national level for a variety of reasons. These are equally important to RN adult and RNMH featured here. RNLD is not forgotten by us. We simply were never commissioned by Health Education England for learning disability nursing under the old regime but we are planning to offer RNLD from 2019 at University of Derby. This is explicitly because it is an important profession needed locally and nationally to provide for the health and social care needs of the population. Bill Whitehead, co-author and deputy dean of the College of Health and Social Care, University of Derby
