JACLYN ANDERSON

BRANCH MANAGER, EDINBURGH

I have my SVQ in health and social care and a number of other  health and social care qualifications.  I really enjoy working within the care sector and find it very rewarding and enjoy the daily challenges that my post brings. 

I have been working in the care sector for over 25 years and have worked within many different services.  I started working as a domestic worker in a care home before moving on to working with older people in a residential setting.  To broaden my horizon I began supporting people with learning and physical difficulties and children and adults with Autism in the community.

REGIONAL NURSE - SCOTLAND

I qualified as a nurse in 1990 and spent the early part of my nursing career working in acute care eventually as a charge nurse in a vascular surgery ward. In 2001 I moved to higher education to become a lecturer in adult nursing eventually progressing to be Academic Programme Lead for adult nurse education. I was recognised for excellence in education by an award for student support and in 2023 became a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I have a BSc in Nursing, Certificate in Management Studies, an MSc in Health Sciences, and in 2023 gained an MSc in Professional Practice.

In 2023 I decided it was time for a change so moved back into healthcare. I initially spent some time working in care homes to widen my clinical experience then was delighted to accept the role of Regional Nurse (Scotland) with Prestige Nursing & Care. I am passionate about care at home; this passion has been influenced by my personal experience as a carer for my son who lives with complex care needs and my role as a trustee for Dundee Carers Centre.
