Band 6 acute learning disability liaison nurse
Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust
My name is Jessica Ball and I am a Learning Disability Nurse. I qualified in 2022, studying at Kingston University, and was incredibly lucky to have won the category for Student Nurse of the Year: Learning Disabilities 2022.
My first role as a newly qualified nurse was at an intensive assessment and treatment unit for adults with a learning disability as a staff nurse and I am due to start the role of an Acute Learning Disability Liaison Nurse. I am incredibly passionate about the work I do and promoting equality for individuals with a learning disability. In my free time I love being active and spending time with my friends and family.
