Change agent Skills- I am emotionally intelligent and believe that I get good results from the team that I have worked with. I have developed a deputy award leader role in nursing and this has resulted in two members of my team gaining promotion. I have championed innovations such as Enquiry Based learning and grading of practice within curriculum development, integration of service users and carer’s into nursing interviews and pedagogical assessment activities. I have taken the lead to instigate curriculum changes e.g Major modifications with the NMC, based on feedback from students and partners; Reviewing the interview process for nursing to make it more vibrant.
I am currently undertaking a Doctorate exploring nurse academic identities and contributions to clinical practice, using appreciative inquiry. I have been particularly interested in theme board technique as a method of data collection.
