Andrea Jordan

I have 21 years’ experience as a children’s nurse, having qualified in 1996. In 2002 I commenced as a specialist nurse and subsequently completed my degree and Master’s degree and qualified as a Children’s Advanced Nurse Practitioner and Non-Medical Prescriber.

Working at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, my role as Lead Clinical Nurse Specialist within the Paediatric Surgery/Urology department includes the provision of care, teaching and advice to children, their families and to their care team members. The children I meet have a diverse range of underlying diagnoses and problems including those involving their bladder and urinary system and/or their bowel.

My team and I work closely with a range of specialist colleagues including the Paediatric Surgeons/Urologists and gastroenterologists and community-based staff including paediatricians and nurses. We also provide our own specialist nurse clinics for children and perform nurse-led investigations to aid diagnosis and assess progress.
