    Personal profile


    Commenced working at Edge Hill University as a Lecturer in Nurse Education in November 2020- specialising within my field and background of Mental Health Nursing, though working as a staff member supporting and delivering teaching to current 3rd Year BSc (Hons) Nursing Programmes, and the new NUR3000 Year 3 of Study (new NMC 2018 Standards) as from September 2021.

    I am also a Personal Tutor to a number of Students on the BSc (Hons) Nursing Programme, as well as being an Academic Assessor to Students in Practice (this is a relatively new role).

    Currently undertaking the Post Graduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education (PGCTHE), that will lead to membership as a Fellow in the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) - this scheduled for completion in 2022

This covers the whole adult lifespan working with Adults and Older Persons in my time in clinical practice. I have worked in East Anglia, South of England, Lake District and the North West of the UK as a Senior Nurse.
