How I became a nurse…

Rob Ratcliffe – Clinical lead, District Nurse and Community Practice Educator with the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust – talks about his route into nursing…

I started my NHS career as a healthcare support worker at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust after a family member was admitted to the hospital.

I was then seconded to do my nurse training and once qualified, worked in A&E for three years. Twelve years ago I started in a community nursing role, where I have since completed my specialist practice qualification and my practice teacher module.
