Priscilla Fernandez (BN, BSc (Hons))
Clinical Research Nurse
Priscilla first qualified as a Registered Adult Nurse from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2006. Her first post consisted of a medical ward rotation, changing wards every 3 months to ensure a broad exposure to different specialties for a period of 18 months. Following this, Priscilla secured a post at a medical ward in Glasgow where she worked for the next 5 years. Knowing that she wanted to specialise in Reproductive Health, Priscilla then completed her Midwifery degree at the University of Central Lancashire in 2014 and secured a post at the Pregnancy Support Centre at the RIE, where she looked after patients experiencing complications in early pregnancy. Whilst working there, she became interested in the research being conducted by Prof. Andrew Horne; this is when she became a Clinical Research Nurse working within his team in 2015. Since then, she has worked on clinical trials hoping to help women suffering from pelvic pain and/or endometriosis.
