I have worked in Critical Care since 2007 and have always been passionate about quality improvement, education, patient safety, staff wellbeing and development.I have been an active member of the BACCN since 2014, I support the BACCN’s agenda of providing a national voice to shape the strategy for Critical Care nursing and this is an excellent avenue for me to network with other nurses around the country. I am a wife and mum to two sweet boys, I love baking, singing and travelling.  


Katie Burns (BACCN Midlands Secretary)

I am Katie, and I worked as an intensive care nurse for seven years before making the change to work in higher education teaching undergraduate nurses in 2021. My current interests in education are compassion, biosciences, and advanced clinical skills. I continue to do clinical work on an ad hoc basis around the East Midlands area. I Enjoy being able to stay relevant to my students as well as maintaining and improving my skills as a critical care nurse. Many students I interact with are keen to enjoy a career in critical care – it is my aim through the BACCN to give them the opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge in this area.
