A lot of people on here talk about their work (apologies to anyone unemployed or on disability) I was wondering what everyone does for their job.
I'll kick off: I've been a trained nurse since 1975, a trained children's nurse since 1979, and a health visitor since 1984 with a counselling diploma thrown in lol. My main areas of interest are nutrition (funny enough) behaviour problems in children and speech and language delay in under 5 year olds.
