My career in nursing started in 2000 as an RGN at North Manchester General Hospital. I specialised as an Intensive Care Nurse for 9 years before moving on to working for skills for health, a non-profit organisation supporting commissioned and non-commissioned health care programme across the North West.  In 2017 I joined Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust to support the legacy Trainee Nursing Associate Programme. I then had the opportunity to join the PEF team and continue to support TNA’s and other preregistration programmes across Midwifery, the acute and community hospital. I entered nursing as a mature student and have experienced a fulfilling career as well as bringing up a family. It has given me opportunities and sent me in directions I could never have imagined. The passion that I have for the profession and workforce development gets stronger as I continue to progress into my new venture.
