Working As An Advanced Nurse Practitioner

Working As An Advanced Nurse Practitioner

What does it really take to gain a job as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner?

Written by Carol Parks

For 15 years, I was a Practice Nurse based in 3 practices; 1 rural, 1 semi-rural and one town centre. I loved my job but felt I could do more.

When visiting a local walk-in centre with my daughter for an ECG, the nurse practitioner couldn’t get the machine to work. When I volunteered to help, he asked if I was looking for a job!

This was the change I needed.

I contacted the service manager who was recruiting for Nurse Practitioners. I didn’t have the correct skill set at the time, but I did have a wealth of experience. She offered me a developing role with the opportunity to attend University to gain skills in history taking, consultation skills in minor illness and injury and a module on professional judgement.

I felt wrapped in a cocoon of enthusiasm, and this fuelled my need for successful learning.

On completion of this course, my keenness took me to an Independent Prescribing course which enabled me to complete my consultations autonomously. It was thrilling, challenging and occasionally scary. Three years later I became the Lead Nurse for the same walk-in centre, helping to develop others through education and support.

It was now, I began wondering about my future in the NHS. I completed the Leadership Academy course for new leaders in the NHS, and forged many contacts through new skills, and developed a leap in confidence.

Looking for balance in my life, I opted for a Nurse Practitioner Job in general practice. My first role was unsatisfactory to me, as there was a huge staff turnover which left the nursing team unsupported.

My second role was in a very pleasant rural practice, but with no plans for future development.

Then came my chance. I applied to a forward-thinking town centre practice with good GP support, very open to change and new development. The Practice Manager was fluid in his thinking, and liked instant messages and emails with suggestions for change which could benefit the Practice.

My new role is Advanced Nurse Practitioner, responsible to the urgent care needs of the practice. Through this role I can autonomously assess, diagnose, treat or admit patients who need to be seen urgently. I can demonstrate Locum GP reductions for the practice, and decreased workload for the partners who employ me.

This is my challenge, and I plan to enjoy it!
