Urology Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust

Qualified as a registered nurse in 1999 and my first posting was on a urology ward. In 2001 was appointment as senior staff nurse and assisted with the development of the urology Hospital at Home team. Worked on a rotation system on the ward and urology Hospital at Home team for a further 2 years. Then began working with the urology Advanced Nurse Practitioner’s in 2003. Initially this was a secondment post, soon after was made a permanent member of the team. Since then Jenny has continued to develop her skills, knowledge and education studying at both degree and masters level. Since qualifying she has always had a special interest in bladder cancer and wanted to improve the support and care offered to this group of patients. Jenny trained as a stoma nurse in 2004 to ensure patients requiring cystectomy surgery were offered continuity of care and ongoing support. In 2009 Jenny commenced extensive training with the urology consultants to develop as a nurse cystoscopist.
