    Adult Nursing

    Community Nursing

    Classic Grounded Theory methodology

     

Upon qualification as a registered nurse (adult), I worked within the cardiology setting, rotating between the coronary care unit, angiography and the general medical ward. I loved this role but I could not resist my passion for district nursing, so I spent the rest of my clinical work as a community nurse. I was fortunate to secure a secondment in the tissue viability service which enabled me to disseminate best practice in the district nursing service.

I completed a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2019 within the field of military trauma and contributed to teaching on the undergraduate nursing programme. I have published within peer-reviewed journals within the fields of education, methodology and tissue viability. I am an editorial board member for the British Journal of Nursing (Community Wound Care) and the Royal College of Nursing's Primary Health Care journal. I am the communities and opportunities editor for the Defence Research Network.

I was awarded Fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts in 2020 for outstanding achievements to social change and development.
