Nursing representative elected to Royal College of Anaesthetists

  • Comment

Critical care nurse practitioner Carole Boulanger of the Royal Devon and Exeter Foundation Trust has been elected to represent advanced critical care practitioners nationally in the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Ms Boulanger is trained to perform procedures previously undertaken by medical staff, such as endotracheal intubation, invasive line insertion and solo transfer of the critically ill for tertiary care.

She said: “Career progression for experienced nurses usually goes in the direction of management or education. I hope roles such as mine will offer a new direction for nurses, like myself, who want to keep significant patient contact.”
