Dr Carmel Bond PhD, MSc, MSc, BSc (Hons), PGCE, RMN
Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing
I completed my first degree in Science with Education at Sheffield Hallam University and am a proud SHU Alumna. I also hold Masters degrees in both Psychology and Nursing Science (Mental Health). I am interested in a broad range of topics related to mental health and wellbeing, and I deliver sessions across modules of the undergraduate and postgraduate pre-registration mental health nursing curriculum.
Prior to joining Sheffield Hallam, I was employed as Research & Policy Associate at the Florence Nightingale Foundation (FNF), a UK charity that provides leadership development opportunities for nurses and midwives. I managed the end-to-end delivery of several research projects, some of which informed national policy.
My experience of working in a caring capacity spans 30+ years. In my clinical practice I have sought to deliver the highest standard of care possible, with dignity and respect; focussed on promoting recovery using a strengths-based approach. Humanism and Rogerian person-centred theories underpin my nursing philosophy. I am passionate about providing student nurses with high-quality learning experiences, to enable them to have a positive influence on the nursing workforce in the future.
Before becoming a mental health nurse, I lectured human biology to diverse groups of adult learners at a further education college. As a newly qualified mental health nurse I was employed at a medium secure hospital, and later transferred to older-adult acute services. During my nurse training, and whilst working clinically, I became inspired to undertake my PhD in mental health and wellbeing. I was awarded my Doctorate titled “Discourses of compassion from the margins of healthcare: perspectives of mental health nurses and patients with lived experience of mental health care” in February 2023. My work has been published in national and internationally excellent peer-reviewed journals. I have also authored various articles on the topic of nursing wellbeing, one of which recommended that regular clinical supervision is what’s required to maintain the future workforce. This work was recently cited in a joint statement to government which sets out the rationale for making clinical supervision mandatory for all nurses.
