I am an experienced Senior Manager/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner offering a wide range of expertise developed through working in education and clinical practice. I have developed high motivational skills achieved leading a large clinical team/unit through organisational change and progression.
As head of Mental Health I have demonstrable experiences of leading academic, operational and curriculum development and working with external partners to successfully take new awards through to validation, writing course documentation and preparing reports. I have successfully implemented change and encouraged innovation evidenced through the development and engagement of service users/cares in all our nursing courses/programmes.
I am proficient working within an inter-professional environment through developing, leading, teaching and facilitating across a range of professional courses for undergraduate and postgraduate developments both regionally and nationally. I embrace the possibilities in developing new and innovative programmes that share appropriate common elements, core skills and focus on students being at the centre of their own learning.
Essential to managing diverse teams was and is providing strong and enthusiastic leadership. I can inspire others by word of mouth and example. I motivate colleagues and the team by having an understanding of what drives them towards achieving their own goals and aspirations through the performance reviews using coaching and mentoring techniques to help them realise their potential which brings individual satisfaction and makes them feel valued.
I take full responsibility for my role and demonstrate a high level of personal commitment and interest, whilst providing direction through initiatives and innovation from extensive knowledge and experience of successful income generation activity.
I am highly committed to educational excellence, research and development which has led to embarking on the Professional Doctorate – my focus being ‘safeguarding students’.
