‘Knowing you can make a difference is an honour’

Hospital resuscitation officer and former RCNi Nurse of the Year Amanda Burston explains what inspires her to work as a nurse.

What is your job?

I am resuscitation officer and life support instructor (basic, paediatrics, immediate and advanced) at Royal Stoke University Hospital, part of University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust. I provide support and leadership in all hospital cardiac/respiratory arrest events. I also deliver training, support changes in policy, and maintain, interpret and input data for National Cardiac Arrest audits. With professional support, I care for people who have experienced domestic abuse. I attend an all-parliamentary party group chaired by Jess Phillips MP and am a member of the RCN domestic abuse forum.
