I joined the School of Health Sciences in 2016 as a Teaching Fellow for Integrated Care. Since qualifying as a registered Adult Nurse I have worked in both the National Health Service (NHS) and private sector in London, Surrey and Hampshire. My experience spans across a variety of areas such as Cardiac Nursing, Coronary Care, Critical Care Nursing (including transplants) and Practice Nursing in the Community. Within my London Critical Care career I have been involved in Clinical Governance and Policy Development, and was a nominated finalist for “Nurse of the Year Award 2009” following feedback from patients and staff. I have also completed a post graduate Diploma in Tropical Nursing at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and have an interest in healthcare in the developing world.
Prior to joining the University I worked in Clinical Education in a partner NHS Trust, supporting student nurses in clinical practice. It was in this role that I began my relationship with the University and developed a real curiosity and enthusiasm for clinical education. Since moving into education I have completed my Post Graduate Certificate in Education for Professional Practice (PGCEPP) enabling me to gain qualified teacher status with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. At the University I teach on a wide range of professional preparation modules and link with clinical practice to provide support to students through my role as Practice Liaison Tutor.
