Biography

Dr Gemma Stacey is a registered mental health nurse and Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham. She has an international profile in Nurse Education in the area of service user and carer participation and is Director of Public Engagement. This has involved the development and evaluation of innovative approaches to education and assessment which have been cited internationally in research and policy. This body of innovation and scholarship resulted in Gemma being made a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, receiving a Lord Dearing Award for excellence in teaching and learning and a Vice Chancellors Medal for civic service. Gemma has led on the development and growth of Graduate Entry Nursing in her institution and is currently program director. This has involved leading a team to deliver a two year masters level program which meets the requirements for NMC registration. The program has grown to be the largest and most highly regarded in the country under Gemma's leadership and was recently a finalist in the category of "best pre-registration provider" in the Student Nursing Times awards.

Gemma's educational expertise is complemented by a program of research focused on healthcare workforce. Gemma has attracted external funding to develop interventions to improve retention and explore the impact of non-traditional routes into nursing in relation to recruitment and impact on the profession. She has developed the research capacity of her team and set up international networks of academics to forward the quality of the evidence based underpinning Graduate Entry Nursing. This has resulted in 14 peer review publications on this topic alone over 3 years. She has also supported a number of GEN students to pursue clinical academic careers and successfully mentored them to receive NIRH and ESRC studentships. Gemma has held two editorial positions at Nurse Education in Practice (2015-2019) and International Practice Development Journal (2019 - current). She is committed to supporting novice writers to disseminate their activity and share their learning to influence and lead practice development.
