Thirty one participants engaged in this oral history research study aimed at exploring the lived experience of intellectual disability nurses and health care assistant’s knowledge of the trajectory of intellectual disability nursing over the last thirty years in the jurisdictions of the Republic of Ireland and England. Findings from Ireland consider the nature of intellectual disability services and the registered nurse in intllectual disability while also exploring societal changes and lifetimes journey in nursing. Findings from England focus on opportunities and restrictions in intellectual disability nursing, shared visions, the changing context within which work took place and also the internal and external supports that impacted their roles. It is evident that intellectual disability nurses must be responsive to the changing landscape of service provision and also the requirements for contemporary new roles in order to meet the changing needs of people with intellectual disabisabilities.
