My name is Sarah Vickers and I am Nurse Educator for the school of nursing - I am a qualified Paediatric Nurse with a background in general medical and surgical paediatric nursing and as a Paediatric Emergency Department Nurse.
I am part of the Nurse Educator team so I teach a lot of the clinical skills within the school of nursing.
When I qualified as a nurse I worked for nearly 3 years on the children's unit at Royal Blackburn Hospital. During this time I completed additional shifts at many different hospitals across the North West to give me a feel for paediatric nursing in the region. I then moved to the children's ward at Royal Lancaster Infirmary for a year where I then transitioned to be a Paediatric Clinical Lead in the Emergency Department. I then moved back to Royal Blackburn Hospital as a Junior Sister in the Paediatric Emergency Department before joining UCLAN in January 2020 as a Nurse Educator.
