Lucy Mottram MSc, SFHEA

Principal Lecturer in Adult Nursing


My clinical background is critical care and community nursing. I am currently the business and enterprise and simulation lead for the nursing and midwifery department.


I qualified as a nurse in 2003 and have experience in critical care and community nursing. I am a member of the British Association of Critical Care Nurses and have undertaken the North Trent Critical Care Network Course.

Since coming to SHU in 2014 I have undertaken an MSc in Healthcare Education. My dissertation focused on the impact of interprofessional education on patient care. I am currently the Business and Enterprise lead for the department, as well as the Simulation lead. I manage our Simulated Placement delivery, supported by our simulation lecturers. My areas of teaching include interprofessional education, leadership, research and clinical skills/ simulation.
