Teaching and Supervisory Responsibilities
My main responsibility is teaching clinical skills across all levels of the BSc (Hons) Nursing course and the Nurse Associate programme. I also teach clinical skills to CPD students.
Aside from teaching clinical skills I also have a passion for teaching students about end of life care, cancer care and more specifically Haematology.
I am a Personal Academic Tutor for students both on the Pre-Registration Nursing Degree course and for Nurse Associates. I also supervise Masters students undertaking their final stage module.
I have been a registered adult nurse since 2010 where I started working with the specialism of Haematology.
I quickly developed a passion for malignant Haematology and caring for patients with these diseases. Therefore I went on to be the Research Sister running clinical trials and recruiting leukaemia patients. I was very involved in delivering their care and provided support throughout their years of treatment.
Following my time as a Research Sister I joined the university as a clinical skills lecturer as I have always enjoyed teaching. Now I am a member of the practice education support team. Through partnership with mentors in clinical areas we, as a team, support and advise about quality of learning and practice.
