Senior Lecturer Programme Lead for Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship (Adult)
I am a registered nurse with a primary background in Critical Care and Critical Care Outreach. I have previously delivered clinical skills education across health related courses including Pharmacy and Nursing. Since June 2021 I have been the programme lead for the Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship (RNDA) that runs in partnership with Spire Healthcare. During my career at the university I have developed an interest in simulation across all aspects of healthcare education.
I am part of a team of Armed Force Champions, committed to ensuring that service personnel and their families are supported as they transition into life at university. Having started my career serving as an engineering technician in the Royal Navy, working on Polaris Submarines, I changed my career to retrain as a nurse. I want to ensure my experiences can help influence others who are interested in exploring a new career in healthcare.
Teaching and supervision
I am the Programme Leader for the Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship (RNDA) which runs in partnership with Spire Healthcare. I have an interest in human factors and the impact on patient safety. I also have a substantial input into the simulation-based teaching across the Faculty.
