After qualifying as a nurse and midwife I have held a number of different positions within the NHS in Scotland, including Medical Ward Sister and Midwifery Sister in Stirling Royal Infirmary and a Practice Educator with NHS24. A BA in Education and an MSc in Applied Social Research both gained from Stirling University added to my nurse teaching qualification.
