I started nursing at Northumbria University in 2008 and I have continued my professional development here too. By gaining my Postgraduate certificate I started to become part of management and although I currently enjoy it, in the future I see myself teaching so I completed an MSc in Education which was totally out of my comfort zone but enjoyed every minute. I had a baby in between the course as well as working full time, the university were so flexible. I graduated before my baby's first birthday.
