Lecturer in Children's and Young People's Nursing
I'm new into the world of academia but have a wealth of knowledge and experience as well as a passion for nursing that I want to share! I'm looking forward to supporting students on their learning journey into this wonderful profession!
I am new to lecturing but have over 12 years experience as a children's nurse. I worked as a staff nurse on general paediatric wards across the North East before becoming a children's community nurse, providing care closer to home and preventing hospital admissions. I have knowledge and experience of acute care, palliative care and safeguarding but my area of expertise is with children with neuro-disabilities and complex health needs.
I also have extensive knowledge and experience of epilepsy and more recently was employed as a Children's Epilepsy Nurse Specialist where I ran nurse led clinics offering education, advice and support. I am also a non-medical prescriber.
