My clinical background is intensive care/high dependency nursing with a specific interest in the provision of End of Life care within such a highly technological speciality. I have continued to improve my clinical knowledge and skills through CPD and post registration qualifications. I am a module leader for a 3rd year Adult pre-registration module. I am passionate about nursing and teaching and aim to use my knowledge, skills and practice experiences to inform students.
Following on from experiences in community care and registered childcare over a number of year’s nurse training became a natural progression. I have been a UCLan student from pre -registration and through CPD over a period greater than 10 years. Through this a strong commitment to UCLan and its students has developed. Clinical post registration experience within ICU has led to acquiring a high level of clinical knowledge and skills from nursing patients with a wide variety of acute medical and surgical conditions. This knowledge is maintained through continuing to practice in a clinical role and keeping up to date with evidence based practice.
In addition to teaching in a clinical setting, the opportunity to develop into full time lecturing came from an 18 month secondment to UCLan as a lecturer/practitioner. Combining the lecturer/clinical role over this period of time provided insight into the needs of students both in theory and practice within the curriculum. I have been a full time lecturer at UCLan since Sept 2015.
