Could you become a digital nurse specialist?

Laura Rogers Digital nurse specialist, Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust

The role involves prioritising patient safety and improving systems, as well as good communication skills

When my trust began implementing an electronic patient record (EPR) system six years ago, it was looking for staff to clinically assure the new system and processes being designed for clinicians. I was interested and, with 15 years of health visiting and safeguarding experience, I felt confident that I knew about clinical risk management, so I applied. But as I knew little about health technology, I was surprised when I was offered a role with the digital clinical safety team.
