Academic Expertise

Rachel is the Module Leader on the pre-registration Leadership and Management module. Following successful completion of her Registered General Nurse Training at South Manchester Rachel initially worked on a male general surgical ward. From there she worked as a staff nurse on a Children’s Unit in a District General Hospital, this led her to commence her Children’s Nurse Training at the University of Salford which she completed in 2000. Since then she has worked on both medical and surgical wards and a children’s medical emergency department at differing grades within an acute trust in the North West where she developed a wide range of knowledge in caring for children and families in hospital. Most recently she was a Clinical Placement Facilitator where she worked closely with Higher Education Institutes, NHS Trusts and Pre-registration Student Nurses.
