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 high standards of teaching and learning opportunities in my 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. Prior to nursing in Primary Care I worked as a Ward Sister in Trauma and Orthopaedics and a Staff Nurse in Accident and Emergency and General Surgery. I moved in to Primary Care in 1994, initially as a School Nurse, but 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.
