Hear from Stacey McKnight, Clinical Sister in Theatres at Antrim Area Hospital.

Maria Scullion, Theatre Nurse, Causeway Hospital

My name is Maria Scullion and I have worked in theatres for 7 years. I really enjoy that theatre nursing is so varied. The job is all about teamwork and supporting each other. There is so much to learn which keeps me motivated and driven. Our team is made up of all grades of staff, from nursing assistants, ATO’s, medical students and consultants. We all learn from each other and have fun in the process. We work closely with other multidisciplinary teams such as Emergency Department staff, Intensive Care Unit and Maternity, which forms good working relationships in Causeway Hospital in Coleraine.

Student Nurses, Theatres, Antrim Area Hospital

We have had 14 weeks placement experience in Antrim Area Hospital Theatres. We feel we have developed our skills, communication and knowledge within this interdisciplinary team setting.  All members of staff in both theatres and recovery have been an outstanding support for our learning and progression during this challenging time, as coming to theatres during the COVID-19 pandemic was initially overwhelming. However, we have really enjoyed and valued our experience here and the skills and qualities we have gained here will continue to carry these throughout our nursing careers.
