I have had a number of development opportunities in terms of academic learning which have provided me with the necessary knowledge and skills I require in order to do my job. These include diplomas in Parkinson's disease, Health and Social Care management and Respiratory Disease. I have had the opportunity to be a part of the Clinical Nurse Leadership Programme which I have found beneficial to my personal and professional growth and development. Setting up two nurse-led clinics within my department provided me with the opportunity for development. The development of a one-stop clinic and subsequent audit helped me develop my skills in managing public awareness and increasing productivity within my department. During my career I have found my colleagues with whom I have worked to be an invaluable source of support and guidance. The help and support I have received from managers, medical colleagues and mentors has assisted with my personal and professional development.
I would say that anyone taking up a similar post would need to be motivated and enjoy their role within nursing in every aspect. You would require a certain amount of experience in different aspects of nursing. You should use the pace within an outpatients department to develop yourself and the service which your team are delivering. You should seize every opportunity to update or plan ahead for your future. You should try to get involved with changes occurring within the wider service to influence both good and challenging aspects of nursing development. Allow your voice to be heard and use every opportunity to make that happen.
