Meet Sarah, Clinical Nurse Manager with Exemplar Health Care
21 July 2021
Sarah is the Clinical Nurse Manager at Ribble View. After training as a Registered Mental Health Nurse, she’s worked in a range of settings before joining the management team at our Ribble View care home in Preston. In this blog, she shares her career journey, showcasing the great opportunities available for Registered Nurses at Exemplar Health Care.
From a young age, Sarah has worked in the social care sector. Her first role was in a learning disability service supporting adults who displayed behaviours of concern, and from there, she trained to become a Registered Mental Health Nurse.
In her early nursing career, Sarah worked in a range of settings including mental health, psychiatric intensive care, eating disorders and elderly care.
Moving into a management role
She soon found that her passion was supporting people who display behaviour of concern, and she gained experience working on specialist challenging behaviour units before moving to an 80-bed specialist nursing home.
It was here that Sarah took her first step into management and was quickly promoted to the Head of Nursing.
Sarah was keen to further develop her skills and experience, and joined Ribble View as Clinical Nurse Manager in November 2020.
