Senior Community Lecturer in Community and Childrens Nursing

  Michelle Panniers - Senior Community Lecturer in Community and Childrens Nursing

Hello, my name is Michelle Panniers.

Michelle Panniers

For over 30 years I have worked as a passionate Children’s Nurse, initially in the acute hospital environment, then having the privilege to care for children with complex health needs within the community setting. ​

​More recently my career focused on well children, and working closely with children, young people, and their families, as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse, to promote their positive health and well-being which will help them become healthier within adulthood. This opportunity led me to my current role as a Senior Lecturer within Community and Children’s Nursing.​

The different career options are vast; however, everyone strives to keep the child’s well-being at the centre of everything they do.​

It's safe to say that a lot has changed over the years, but I have loved every job I have ever had. Children’s Nursing allows you to be an advocate for the child, to embrace family-centred care to work with them in partnership to help them achieve their goals.​

​Children’s Nurses work hard to nurse children well, or at the other end of the scale, to care for and provide a better quality of life or end of life for children with life-limiting conditions.​

If I had to give a piece of advice to someone considering a career in Children’s Nursing, it would be… Never underestimate the difference you make.​
