I qualified in 2016 and joined the elective trauma and orthopaedics (T&O) unit based in a Wolverhampton Trust. During my time there I gained skills in pre- and post-surgical management, alongside advanced life support skills as I held the cardiac arrest bleep for the hospital.
After 5 years on the T&O unit, I moved into a split role in Nurse Education, where I supported the training and development of international nurses attempting to gain their UK registration. I ran an OSCE boot camp programme as part of a team which consisted of the development and launch of e-learning materials and hands-on simulated practice of a variety of clinical skills.
I also developed, led and delivered the Intravenous (IV) Study Day for the Trust, which provided IV training to all qualified staff members within the Trust.
Alongside this, I have also developed and taught on the ALERT and Acute Illness Management Course and gained recognition and registration as a qualified AIM instructor.
I have been involved in numerous service improvement projects to help support and develop interventions to improve patient care and patient safety.
