|Paula Vernon (f)|
Trainee Advance Clinical Practitioner
Qualifying as a Registered nurse in 1989, I have worked in various nursing positions within an acute hospital setting that included ward sister, ward manager, clinical nurse specialist and clinical matron, allowing me to gain experience with patients who attended or were admitted to hospital with acute and long term conditions. I have experience of working with patients of various ages who have had been admitted or attended hospital with surgical, medical, orthopaedic, vascular and cardiac conditions.
I have gained many professional and academic qualifications during my nursing career, the highest academic qualification I have achieved is a Master’s degree. In 2010 I became an independent prescriber and am currently working towards a second Master’s qualification in advanced practice.
