Most Registered Nurses Learning Disabilities (RNLDs) choose to work in a role which enables them to regularly deliver direct patient care providing safe, effective, person centred care on a day to day basis. Through experience, continuous professional development (CPD), mentoring and supervision, RNLDs can develop very specialist and autonomous clinical roles, including Behaviour Nurse, Behaviour Nurse Therapist, Epilepsy Specialist Nurse, Senior Nurse Practitioner, Mental Health Practitioner, Healthcare Facilitator and Community Forensic Practitioner.
