Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing

My teaching is focused around the development of theoretical and clinical skills for nursing and health care practice. I am part of the year 1 and year 2 team for pre-registration nursing.

I have an extensive background in skills for practice and work based learning. The University of Sunderland won the Student Nursing Times Award 2018 for Nurse Education Provider of the Year (Post-Registration) for my work-based learning programmes. My clinical expertise is in Advanced Nurse Practitioner/Advanced Practice roles. Advanced nursing practice is one of my research interests along with Non-Medical Prescribing.

My nursing background is in Emergency/urgent care, General Practice as a Practice Nurse and Advanced Nurse Practitioner and as a Community Matron.

I am a Senior Lecturer in Nursing, a registered nurse teacher with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA). I also lecture and supervise dissertation students on a wide range of courses and modules including Nursing, Public Health and Pharmacy.

Teaching and supervision

I teach on BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice and also on several health CPD modules. I am the Module Lead for:

  • Enquiry For Nursing Practice
  • Holistic Nursing For Altered Physiology To Promote Wellbeing

Research interests for potential research students

I am able to offer support to students undertaking projects in many areas of Nursing and Healthcare.


Currently, I am undertaking the Professional Doctoral programme with a view to exploring and enhancing the process of clinical assessment. I have a specialist interest in advanced nursing roles and clinical practice. My research has a focus on clinical proficiency and the pedagogy underpinning the teaching and learning in a clinical environment.
