I qualified initially in Adult Nursing (Registered General Nurse) and worked in medical and orthopaedic wards in Sligo on the northwest coast of Ireland. I left this to become a Registered Mental Health Nurse and have experience in care of the older adult, PICU with Forensics and Acute Care for Adults, working in West Yorkshire.
On completion of my degree, I moved into education and have taught nursing in Dublin and Sligo before returning once again to West Yorkshire. I enjoy reading, photography, cookery and baking – despite the complaints from my family!
