I am a Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing in the Acute Care Division and have worked at the University since February 2004. I qualified as a Registered General Nurse (RGN) in 1986 having completed my training at Staincliffe General Hospital (now Dewsbury & District Hospital). After qualifying I got a post as a Staff Nurse in theatres. By 1990, I was working as a Charge Nurse on the ICU/CCU and began working part-time as a Resuscitation Officer, sharing the responsibilities with a colleague. I continued in these two roles until 1999 when I took on the role as clinical educator for critical care full time. I remained in this post until February 2004 when I left to take up my current role with the University.
I teach across the pre and post-registration nursing courses as well as contributing to other health professional courses here at the University. I am route leader for the SLIP (Supporting Learning in Practice) course. I am married with three daughters.

I will be commencing my doctorate in September 2016. I am also part of an international group, including colleagues from Denmark, Finland and Estonia who successfully applied for EU ‘Transfer of Innovation’ funding and was awarded €250,000 in September 2013. The project, titled NESTLED, is producing a framework to prepare educators who utilise simulation based learning in nursing education.
