Nurse Practitioners

Jennie Lindsey (f)

Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP)

I started working in the NHS in 1994 as an Auxiliary nurse at the Northern General Hospital. I then went on to do my nurse training (Adult) and qualified in 2006. I worked in Respiratory Medicine in Sheffield and then as a Community Staff Nurse in Chesterfield. I was then given the opportunity to become a Community Matron and was employed by a GP practice in Chesterfield. During this time, I attended University to study a Master’s in Advanced Clinical Practice to become an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. I am a full prescriber. 

My interests are Palliative and Cancer Care, Care of the Elderly and Frailty. I lead in the care and support of one of our local care/nursing homes, and I also see a mixture of acute problems in clinic.

“An Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) is an experienced and highly educated Registered Nurse who manages the complete clinical care for their patient, not solely any specific condition. Advanced practice is a level of practice, rather than a type or speciality of practice.

ANPs are educated at Masters Level in advanced practice and are assessed as competent in this level of practice. As a clinical leader they have the freedom and authority to act and accept the responsibility and accountability for those actions. This level of practice is characterised by high level autonomous decision making, including assessment, diagnosis, treatment including prescribing, of patients with complex multidimensional problems. Decisions are made using high level expert, knowledge and skills. This includes the authority to refer, admit and discharge within appropriate clinical areas.

Working as part of the multidisciplinary team ANPs can work in or across all clinical settings, dependant on their area of expertise.”
