Lecturer in Children and Young People's Nursing Practice
I am registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Children’s Nurse, Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (Health Visitor) and Community Practitioner Nurse Prescriber. However, I am brand new into the world of academia.
My acute nursing background has been primarily in neurology and oncology, working in The Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh and The Great North Children’s Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne. Most recently, I have worked for Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust as a Health Visitor. I am passionate about working with children, young people and their families and have a keen interest in public health, adverse childhood experiences and safeguarding children.
I am proud to be a Children’s Nurse and look forward to supporting student nurses on their journey throughout university and watching them flourish as they transition into brilliant staff nurses!
