Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner

  Heidi - Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner

Hello my name is Heidi and I am an Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner.



I’m able to work clinically, performing procedural skills and clinical decision-making similar to the role of a doctor, whilst still being involved in the education of staff, research studies and maintaining leadership and management roles too.

It’s a really diverse role and I feel honoured to be doing it.​

Nursing can take you wherever you want it to. I have worked in North Wales, South Wales, England, and Australia. ​

I qualified as a Children's Nurse (BN Hons) and then took specialist qualifications in special and high dependency care and intensive care and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. These additional qualifications allowed me to gain Junior Sister and Senior Sister posts and become a Practice Educator, a crucial role that is responsible for the education and training of all nursery nurses and nursing staff and oversees the quality of care that families receive from nurses.​

I have a fantastic career, truly rewarding every shift. Yes, there can be long shifts and unsociable hours but how many roles allow you to make a difference to a person’s life each and every day?​
