My nursing career exceeds 20 years in clinical practice that has been predomniantly within the Critical Care areas. The primary areas of my clinical roles have been in General Intensive Care, and Perioperative (PACU), with considerable time also working in Emergency Department, Coronary Care and High Dependency units.
