About

Firstly, thank you for visiting my blog.

My name is Wendy Sinclair and I am a qualified and NMC registered Children’s Nurse. I am currently working at The University of Salford as a Lecturer in Children’s and Young People’s Nursing. I mainly teach pre-registration student nurses and I am in the very early stages of  a PhD.

I qualified as a children’s nurse in 1998 and and worked at Booth Hall Children’s Hospital and Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. I made the transition to higher education in 2007 and I now take pride in contributing to the development of our future nurses.

Balancing the nurture of students while protecting the public, is a challenge and as a wife and mother, my benchmark is and will always be ‘Could I trust you to competently care for my Child?’.

  1. Hi
    I have a question on children nursing I want to apply to do children nursing at university this year and everybody keeps saying to me that children nursing is limiting don’t do it. You should do adult nursing first then children nursing. I have researched children nursing and there are many areas like health visiting, neonatal nursing and school nursing etc.

    thank you for your time

  2. Hi Hannah, good question. Children’s nursing is a great choice and there are many pathways you can follow including acute hospital work, community children’s nursing, health visiting, school nursing, neonatal nursing etc. I say choose children’s nursing if you really enjoy working with children and families and want make difference to their care. Being a children’s nurse is not limiting, every day is different and services are developing rapidly. Why not try volunteering and get some experience in a children’s environment (school, hospital, hospice, girl guiding etc) if you aren’t sure? Good Luck!
