Kathryn comes from an extensive clinical background in Acute and Critical Care Nursing, as an Intensive Care Nursing Sister, and subsequently as a Critical Care Outreach Sister. She co-initiated the first Critical Care Outreach Team in North Trent, and was part of the team that developed and implemented STHFT's Early Warning Score (SHEWS). Her clinical focus was to identify, assess and manage deteriorating patients, across the spectrum of acute clinical settings.
Her motivation for working within Nursing Education is to inspire skills within Nursing Students so they deliver the highest quality Nursing Care at the clinical interface. These emerging professionals are our future clinicians, Specialist Nurses, Advanced Practitioners, Clinical Leaders, Academics and Researchers and with the formative support they will evolve the face of Nursing over the next three decades.
Kathryn holds a Pre-Registration, Post-Registration, Interprofessional and International teaching Portfolio, working with students from level 4 to 7, from within Sheffield Hallam and externally within a large partner service organisation, and carries responsibility for overlooking the development of personal students as an academic advisor.
