Lucy-Marie is a 26 year old Adult staff nurse, that first applied to do her nursing diploma due to witnessing her father being badly treated by nursing staff whilst he was admitted into hospital as a result of a multiple sclerosis relapse. Lucy-Marie was distressed at the way her father was being spoken over, his concerns being ignored, his dignity not being considered, lack of compassion and lack of overall care. When in the first year of her training, she questioned whether she was doing the right field of nursing and wondered if mental health nursing was more suited to her personality. It was decided that it was but had always left her wanted to become dual qualified.
After qualifying, Lucy-Marie started work within Accident and Emergency and within two years an opportunity came about to become dual qualified.
