Advanced Nurse Practitioner

Sonia lake - ANPQualifying as a nurse in 1982 at Torbay Hospital school of nursing, I subsequently worked in many different areas of nursing in the UK and the USA gaining a wealth of knowledge. I undertook diploma and degree courses in Surgical nursing, Ear, nose and throat nursing and mentoring/ teaching students at Plymouth University.

I joined Compass House Medical Centres in 2000 as I wanted to become involved in primary care and become part of a close knit team.

Working as lead practice nurse at the time I attended Bournemouth University and in 2005, qualifting as a Nurse Practitioner Bsc(Hons), soon afterwards attending Plymouth University to complete the Non medical Prescribing course.

I now work within the Doctors/ Advanced Nurse Practitioner team as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

Life is busy with work and home life. I love to travel abroad and in my camper van, go to mini festivals and walking my dog.
