Biography

Expertise Summary

Within the School of Health Sciences (Nursing) my activities are linked to the development, facilitation, implementation and evaluation of pre-registration nurse education linked to client care in diverse community settings. This includes developing and maintaining interdisciplinary contact with practitioners facilitating student practice placements, and utilising innovative learning strategies to maximise opportunity to succeed and demonstrate the qualities of a University of Nottingham graduate nurse on registration. A further aspect of my role is linked to assessment of PGCHE student teaching.

Working in partnership with practitioners in the community practice setting, examples of evidence-based practice have been disseminated by means of peer reviewed journal publications to stimulate debate linked to nursing practice.

To further inform teaching, learning and curriculum development I act as a peer reviewer for two journals with a community nursing focus.
