Mia Paderanga

Mia completed her Bachelor of Nursing Degree with Honours in the University of Glasgow on 2011.

As her first post she worked as a Residential School Nurse for Kilgraston Independent School. Since graduating Mia has had a strong passion for emergency medicine and pursued a career in this field. She has worked in Glasgow Royal Infirmary A&E (2012-13) and is now currently working in Edinburgh Royal Infirmary Emergency Department. She has recently joined the EMeRGE team in March 2015 and is very excited to be part of a team that is so influential in creating a great future for Emergency Medicine.

During her time at university Mia has developed a keen interest and passion for research on the course of writing her dissertation. Her written work about Improving Communication for Patients on Non-Invasive Ventilation has been awarded the ‘Margaret Auld Prize’ representing the highest graded dissertation of the year and is now being used as an example dissertation for future honours students
