Carol Law trained at Torbay Hospital in Devon before moving to the Royal Brompton Hospital where she completed the JBCNS 249 course in Cardiothoracic Nursing and subsequently worked as a night sister. Since 1986 she has worked in nurse education initially as a clinical teacher, then on completion of a BA (Hons) Nurse Education as a Nurse Tutor. Following the move of nurse education into higher education she held a variety of roles at the University of Hertfordshire, developing and delivering both clinical and professional courses at diploma, degree and master’s level. During this time, she completed a Masters in Historical Studies with her dissertation examining the role of philanthropy in the care of sick paupers in the Workhouse.
As a member of the Company of Nurses Carol looks forward to undertaking the role of Archivist which encompasses both her love of nursing and history.
The archives will, over time, record the history of the Company and provide evidence the activities that occurred. The Company of Nurses is in the fortunate position of being able to document its origin and provide an unbroken record of its history. This task will be guided by the Collection Development Policy that will inform the collection and storage of material.
Carol will be assisted in this role by Trevor Bott.
Trevor started his nursing career in infectious diseases. From there his clinical experience has been in haematology, oncology and palliative care.
He was a Research Nurse in oncology for 6 years before taking up his current position at Cancer Research UK where he writes plain English information for their patient information website 'About Cancer'.
