Teaching Associate, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
I qualified in Nottingham in 2010, completing the MNursSci programme in Adult Nursing. I started my career as a Registered Nurse on a Gastrointestinal Medical ward based at QMC. In this role, I looked after individuals with a vast range of medical problems ranging from acute alcohol withdrawal to End of life Palliative care. Whilst in post, I became a Dementia Champion and Nutritional link nurse for the area. I also completed my mentor course and began mentoring and assessing students. In 2012, I moved to the Coronary Care Unit based at QMC, receiving patients with again, a vast range of medical conditions, such as myocardial infarctions and severe heart failure. In this role I continued to mentor students, and carry out the role of Nutritional link professional and Dementia Champion. I also completed my Advanced Life Support Course and attended adult cardiac arrests and emergencies at NUH.
Seeing teaching as so enjoyable in both my roles, I moved to the Corporate Nursing team at Nottingham University Hospitals in 2014 and undertook the role of a Clinical Trainer, teaching band 2-4 HCAs (both new starters and existing staff) on a Clinical Skills Academy. In my time in this post, I was also involved in recruitment and selection, nursing audits and implementing new initiatives at NUH. My passion for teaching has bought me to this role as a Teaching Associate for Adult branch at the University of Nottingham.
I have a great passion for teaching and see such importance in relating our learned knowledge to our clinical practice experiences.
