Spanish, Catalan and English

In 2002 I started working as an orderly in the Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona Children’s Hospital, then as an auxiliary nurse.  A little while later, I completed the diploma and started my professional career as an assistant nurse, providing care to paediatric patients in the A&E department, the Paediatric Intensive Care unit and the Haemato-Oncology unit. I specialised in Nursing Care for paediatric patients.  For the last few years I have been undergoing management training and I am the head nurse in the Critical Care unit. I have also gained knowledge and experience in paediatric emergency triage. As a paediatric nurse I am proud to be able to dedicate myself to achieving the highest-quality care possible for patients and their family every day.
