Why did you become a nurse?
An accident when I was 14 necessitated a lengthy and complicated A&E attendance; the nursing impressed me and this was the main deciding factor. Prior to that I wanted to be a teacher.
How has your career developed since you started nursing?
I did gynaecology when I first qualified and went on to become ward sister. I also did my family planning qualification and worked in a community-based clinic for many years alongside this (only resigning very recently due to pressures of work).
