The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) and Queen’s Nursing Institute Scotland (QNIS) have published new Voluntary Standards to support Community Learning Disability Nurse (CLDN) specialist practitioner Education and Practice across the four countries of the UK.

These standards will enhance the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) specialist practice standards for Community Learning Disability Nursing (CLDN), in order to reflect the current practice of the modern-day CLDN Specialist Practitioner.

Below you can download the full CLDN standards and also an easy read document about them.
