I have enjoyed to, date a career in both Nursing for 30 years and Lecturing student nurses for the past 10 years. I specialised in District Nursing and worked in both urban and rural areas. Working within communities allowed me to work autonomously being both responsible and accountable for the care I delivered and decisions I made. Communication was an essential component of my work whether with patients and their families, GP’s, Multi-disciplinary teams and other health care professionals. I gained experience in managing a community case load which included specific expertise in wound management and palliative care. Effective and comprehensive assessment and care planning skills were essential. As well as undertaking the District nursing course, I achieved my BSc in Health studies, became both a Community Practice teacher and Nurse Prescriber. My management skills were fine, tuned during a period of leading a community sector including several District nurse teams the evening and night teams and a respite service.

During my time within the University I have transferred my skills to support the education and development of student nurses. I have also gained other skills in terms of teaching and learning having completed my PGCert. I work closely with practice partners in a dedicated area and support student and mentors in practice.

I see my main expertise as demonstrating personally my care and passion for the role of the qualified nurse. Feedback from students has often included their recognition of my passion and empathy towards patients and their families.
