I am the Lead Link Lecturer for the adult and child nursing placements within the Barnsley region. I am also the Msc Nursing Admissions Lead, having a keen interest in student recruitment activities.
I started my nursing career as an acute stroke nurse, progressing to clinical educator and sister within the unit. I then moved into community nursing to gain a different and further skills set, increasing my knowledge and experience of nursing, prior to moving into education.
Through these roles I have managed patients with long-term conditions, such as stroke and diabetes, taught clinical skills, cared for people with complex wounds and those at the end of life, along with supporting family members.
I have a keen interest in student recruitment, attending most open days, interview events and external recruitment events.
I teach into the Evidence Module throughout levels 4, 5 and 6. I also teach acute stroke management and post stroke management at levels 5 and 6, along with public health, which I particularly enjoy.
I am a supervisor for L7 dissertation students.
