I joined the University of Wolverhampton in 2011 as a Senior Lecturer and work within the Institute of Health Professions. I am a registered adult nurse with a broad range of relevant teaching experience and clinical expertise and a critical care clinical nursing background. I have taught and assessed at Diploma, Degree and Master’s level within a variety of Pre and Post Registration Courses within the Institute of Health Professions. My most recent role has been as award leader for one of the Health Education England trailblazer test sites for the Nursing Associate Foundation Degree that commenced in January 2017. Prior to my senior lecturer role at the University of Wolverhampton, I was a lecturer in pre-registration nursing studies at Bangor University for nine years on the Bachelor of Nursing. 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. 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.
