Nurses’ Day 2018: ‘I learn every day’

Cheryl Hale, a family nurse with East Coast Community Healthcare, wanted to be a midwife since having her own children.
She said: 'I first trained as a direct entry midwife and worked locally as a midwife for seven years. I then completed my health visitor training and when I qualified was lucky to be offered my current job as a family nurse with the family nurse partnership.
'I love my job. It's so rewarding when you feel that you have made a positive difference to someone's life. My current role is supporting hard to reach, teenage first-time parents, until their child is two years old. I feel privileged to be working with these parents and am amazed at the resilience and determination they demonstrate.'
She said managing a demanding caseload could be challenging but said she learned from the parents she supported every day.
'I would certainly encourage others to enter the profession,' she said.
