Anca completed her nurse degree in Romania in 1999.Anca’s last clinical placement as a student nurse was at the local teaching hospital where she first came in contact in with nephrology and dialysis in particular.

As Anca would openly admit, it was love at first sight and Anca committed the next 18 years of professional work to improving the quality of care within the dialysis services.

After relocating to United Kingdom, Anca continued to focus on renal nursing and gained extensive experience in both, acute and chronic renal replacement therapies.

As her career progressed Anca was passionate about providing appropriate services to dialysis patients and was instrumental in changing the way services were delivered .Her vision led to the  creation of the nurse led  dialysis unit  in Plymouth and a smaller satellite nearby.

Anca‘s clinical and leadership skills saw the unit became the second best for patient experience in England. She prides herself in providing patient centred care to the highest standard, using evidence practice to support the wellbeing of renal patients.

As well as extensive clinical and management experience at senior level Anca was at  the forefront of developing the new generation of renal specialist nurses by delivering the Renal Specialist Modules in partnership with University of Plymouth .Her experience as the module teacher and module lead  have contributed to the development of the dialysis services within  the South West.

Anca is enthusiastic about the new MSci nursing programme and feels that her previous teaching experience  and clinical expertise  will match the programme’s vison
