Biography

I am a University Practice Learning Adviser at Bournemouth University. Upon qualification in 1988 I worked within a variety of clinical areas including recovery, critical care, telephone triage and community nursing. I started my career in nurse education as a Practice Educator for critical care, A&E and orthopaedics in a local acute Trust. I have completed a Master’s Degree in Health and Social Care Practice Education and was appointed as a lecturer and UPLA at Bournemouth University on the overseas and pre-registration nursing courses.

My key areas of interest are nursing practice, nurse education, practice development, anatomy, respiratory and critical care. My current role focuses on supporting practice colleagues to provide a high quality learning experience in practice placements.
