Why did you become a nurse?
After 21 years working for the NHS as an administrator, I saw a secondment into nursing advertised. It coincided with my daughter flying the nest to start her own career in medicine and I wondered if after all these years I could pursue a career I had often been told I would be good at.
How has your career developed since you started nursing?
Quite significantly! I started nursing in 2004, as a band 5 nurse, gaining a band 6 role and progressing to my current Band 7 post of service and practice development facilitator within the learning and development department.
