Senior Lecturer BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice

I’m a Senior Lecturer in BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice and have been a registered Adult Nurse since 2008. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and completed my PGCE in 2021 here at the University of Sunderland.

Simulation has not only changed my clinical practice, but it has also shown me the significant importance of non-technical skills to patient experience and professional relationships. It is a core belief that this type of teaching will play an increasingly important role in training and development and promote a safer working environment by engaging students and staff and changing cultures within clinical settings.

I consider myself a student-centered teacher who puts enormous effort into making clinical education informative and engaging whatever the students’ needs. I’m interested in emergency care, reflective practice, non-technical skills, and digital learning, particularly podcasts in health education.

I have been a Registered Adult Nurse since 2008. I have a background in emergency care and medical education in the NHS. In my previous medical education role, I worked with the foundation doctors supporting them with their portfolios, pastorally, and within a simulation setting.

I have taught at the University since 2019, lecturing on BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science and Out of Hospital Care. I joined the BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing team in 2023.  

In 2021 I was given the Student Nominated Teaching Award for the most engaging teacher. In 2022, I was awarded the most inspirational member of the University staff. Both of which I was humbled and honored to receive.
