Senior Lecturer Health and Social Care

Email address: Phone number: 01902 51 8607 Location: Walsall Campus Faculty: Faculty of Education Health and Wellbeing School/Institute: Institute of Health Professions Areas of expertise: Health and Social Care


I joined the University of Wolverhampton in 2011 as a Senior Lecturer and work within the Institute of Health Professions and my remit is post registration education for nurses. I am a registered adult nurse (RN1) with a broad range of relevant teaching experience and clinical expertise and a critical care clinical nursing background. I teach and assess at Diploma, Degree and Master’s level within a variety of Pre and Post Registration Courses within the Institute of Health Professions. Prior to this I was a lecturer in pre-registration nursing studies at Bangor University for nine years on the Bachelor of Nursing. I currently lead the Return to Nursing Practice course and the acute care pathway within the BSc Nursing award.

My clinical nursing background is critical care nursing, most notably intensive care and high dependency nursing of adults. During my clinical role I developed an interest in ethical issues and in 2006 I graduated from Keele University with a Masters in Medical Ethics and Law, which has proved invaluable within my nurse academic role where I teach undergraduate and post graduate students at diploma, degree and masters level. My teaching interests focus on research ethics within nursing and healthcare, nursing law, care of the acutely ill patient. I am a doctoral student enrolled on the Professional Doctorate in Health and Wellbeing and my research interest is to explore the interface between registered nurses and assistant practitioners in acute settings within an interpretive research approach.
