Why did you become a nurse?
I qualified as a nurse in 1981 in Southampton. I began my career working in acute hospital care. In the late 80's, I moved to a community nursing role, which I absolutely loved.
How has your career developed since you started nursing?
I took the opportunity to develop my skills in a different direction in the mid 90's in a lead nursing role at HM Prison Winchester for
12 years and then moved to the DH in London as the assistant director of nursing on the prison health taskforce before moving to the RCN in my current role where I have been for 10 years.
