During the pandemic Brodie Moore like many others continued to work on the front line caring for patients who were COVID positive and supporting not only her own team, but was often moved to work in other teams where staffing numbers were low. As a TNA, on acute medical wards, Brodie ensured she was contributing to the safe care of other patients not just those in her own area.
Brodie not only coped with her own teaching arrangements being altered from face to face to online, but contributed to the learning of other students on paid placements by drawing on her past experiences of being a dental nurse in her previous role and by delivering a valuable teaching session on dental care.
Brodie recognised that within the trust, there were staff and departments that didn’t fully understand the role of the TNA. She took it upon herself to design a poster, which has been shared with the trust board and widely with the STP to include trusts and partners who are new to the TNA programme.
Brodie practices to a very high standard in her home area and in all her placements, she communicates very well with the clinical and education teams. She takes every responsibility with her learning and post her registration is planning to become an RNA Ambassador and to regularly attend RNA forums in order to feedback to the STP and support other TNA’s across the region.
I feel that Brodie has gone above and beyond throughout her whole programme, we recruited her externally and she has been a pleasure to have over the past 2 yrs, she thoroughly deserves recognition for going above and beyond, particularly in the current climate.
