Lecturer in Continuing Professional Development

I was born and grew up in Poland. In 2009, I completed an integrated MSc degree in Animal Science at the University of Agriculture in Krakow, Poland. I began training as a student nurse in 2012 at the University of Northumbria. Since qualifying in 2014 with a PgDip in Adult Nursing, I worked in gynecology in Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle upon Tyne for the next three years. I completed an MSc in Practice Development at the University of Northumbria in 2015.

I moved to research in 2017 working as a Clinical Research Nurse at NIHR Clinical Research Network North East and North Cumbria where I worked predominantly in the delivery of primary care research studies.

In 2021 I submitted my PhD on wellbeing of people with thyroid cancer. My qualitative study was funded by Butterfly Thyroid Cancer Trust, and hosted by Newcastle Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
