Nurses for people with intellectual disabilities are autonomous and accountable practitioners, and in order to behave in a professional manner, they need to be aware of, and remain up-to-date with, the requirements of, and resources from, the professional bodies that regulate their practice. This chapter provides an overview of the role of the professional regulators of nursing in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and the continuing importance of this to registered nurses. It also explores the need for nurses to engage in continuing professional development and outlines opportunities for career development in areas, including specialist and advanced nursing practice, management, education, and research.
