On qualifying as a registered nurse I moved to New Zealand where I worked in a large orthopaedic teaching hospital, ultimately as a ward sister of a trauma orthopaedic ward. On return to the UK in 1988 I moved into nurse education and since then, have been involved in a variety of courses and professional development programmes. I am currently Framework Lead for the Faculty of Health and Social Science CPD Framework for health and social care professionals, and as such manage units leading to both University and Professional Body qualifications. Hence, my role is to support and encourage students in their personal and professional development and advise and them of the most appropriate path to take.
