I'm Stacey Waugh, an advanced nurse practitioner working in Health in Justice.
I came to work in a prison for a totally new challenge and a different direction in my nursing career, after working for many years in a secondary care setting I wanted a new change in primary care.
I am very well supported from my manger and I have been given fantastic opportunities with training and development and I have always been encouraged with this.
I enjoy the complexity of my job and enjoy working in the prison, it can be hard and extremely busy with many different things thrown in my direction on a daily basis, but this is also what challenges me and insights me to continue my role.
I know that if I have a bad day there is someone for me to speak to and be able to reflect on the day.
There are always good and bad days in any job but with a supportive team we are able to over challenge this and carry on.
