About

Following completion of the Post Graduate Certificate in Education I commenced as a part time lecturer in August 2017. I have always enjoyed teaching and mentoring in the clinical setting and am now keen to provide the highest standards of teaching and learning opportunities in my new role at the University of Wolverhampton. I am also the Professional Lead and Facilitator for General Practice Nursing in East Staffordshire and this enables me to maintain my clinical skills. I have worked in Primary Care for 24 years, firstly as a School Nurse and I moved in to General Practice Nursing in 1998. I became an independent and supplementary nurse prescriber in 2009 and now teach on the V300 course. I am a Queen’s Nurse and have worked with the Queen’s Nursing Institute on their resources for new practice nurses and also the transition of care from child to adult project. As a Queen’s Nurse I was part of a virtual group discussion with the Nursing and Midwifery Council looking at the skills and competencies for a newly qualified nurse. I am also one of the volunteers of the WeGPNs group on Twitter, which I enjoy using for educational chats with the WeNurses communities.
