Lecturer and Clinical Link Tutor – Adult Nursing
I am a Lecturer and Clinical Link Tutor for BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice. I am a registered member of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) holding qualifications in Adult Nursing, District Nursing and Nurse Prescribing.
I joined the University of Sunderland in February 2022.
My practice background is District Nursing and I worked in the community setting from qualifying. My last role was as District Nursing Sister in a busy team managing a team of staff and large caseload of complex patients.
My specialist area of practice is palliative and end of life care and wound management.
Teaching and supervision
I am a Lecturer and Clinical Link Tutor for BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice.
I teach various modules including clinical skills sessions, theoretical and virtual learning and thoroughly enjoy supporting students on their learning journey.
I am Clinical Link Tutor (CLT) for Adult Nursing students on placement within the Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This involves weekly support meetings whilst these students are on placement to help them 'bridge the gap' between theory and practice.
I am passionate about nursing in the community setting and have a specific interest in palliative and end of life care and nurse recruitment/retention in the NHS.
