I am an adult nurse with over twenty years experience primarily within critical care and nurse education. I have worked as a clinical educator within critical care developing a robust learning environment for the multidisciplinary team including the use of specialised in house study days and the development of high fidelity in situ simulation techniques.
I joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2021 as a lecturer in adult nursing and love teaching and the discussions generated in the classroom. As a module leader, I have supported the development and delivery of large-scale high-fidelity simulation. Simulation is a crucial element of healthcare education and development, and I am proud to work at an institution that recognises its importance.
Recruitment and retention are an important part of my role; I am active in the student recruitment process and support students in the role of academic advisor. It is a great privilege to see students through their journey from application to the course all the way through to graduation.
My professional interests include care of the critically ill patient, early recognition, and acute intervention in the deteriorating patient, leadership, and civility in healthcare.
