I am a Registered General Nurse and have extensive clinical and academic experience since graduation in a variety of surgical settings, worked as a Lecturer Practitioner and most recently as a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences at Bournemouth University. My preceding role was leading Year 2 Practice for over 500 undergraduates during the pandemic.

My research interests and publications are focused upon supporting and developing educational resources to enhance learning within the health care settings. Examples include assessment in practice, supporting learners with specific learning differences, student experiences in placement and the NMC standards (2018), and the experiences of practice supervisors and assessment in practice during COVID, practitioner inclusion in Team-Based Learning & the role of the personal tutor from a humanising perspective.

I am currently undertaking a PhD at Surrey University and exploring the delegation role of the RN and Care assistants in the ward setting.
