My community

I realised very early on in my career that I was not destined to be a hospital nurse, so I messed around for a few years doing things other than nursing before landing a job as a community staff nurse.

The plan was to stay as a community nurse until my (very little) children grew up, but within 18 months I was on the district nursing course.

I became a district nursing sister, then a tissue viability nurse and then led a team of various specialist nurses while simultaneously working as a community research nurse. A few years ago I moved from clinical practice to teaching and research.
