Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing
I am a Senior Lecturer on BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice. I am module lead for Practice Placement Year 1, but also teach across a variety of modules and support all of the Practice Placement modules across year 1, 2 and 3. I am a Registered Adult Nurse with the Nurse Midwifery Council (NMC) and an Independent Nurse Prescriber.
My clinical background is mainly within the area of cardiology as a Heart Failure Specialist Nurse, working across both the acute and community settings. I supported a large caseload of patients from their initial diagnosis, treatment and education within my specialist role, and gained qualifications with expertise in clinical skills and palliative care.
Teaching and supervision
I teach on BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice. I'm a co-provider of violence and aggression training and Moving and Handling, which are just some of the mandatory training requirements for student nurses prior to clinical placements.
