Perceptions of Nursing and Midwifery

Nurses in the family by Lynsay Ward

There are no nurses in my immediate family, most of them are engineers including my uncles and brother and both of my parents are self employed: www.paperlace.co.uk and IM Plumbing Edinburgh


However in my extended family we have my great gran (who is now 100) who was an old nursing auxiliary, my dads cousin who is a HCA in mental health, his wife who is a nurse in our community hospital, their niece (who I think of as a cousin) who is a carer in learning disabilities.


Then from my husbands side, my husband himself is a paramedic and his cousin is a HCA in respiratory.


On top of this, my best friend from school is a cardiac nurse, and my daughter's best friends mum is a student child nurse.


So I suppose that although I didn't grow up with much nursing influence as a child, I do have plenty around me as an adult!
