I’m married to Eley and we have three children. I started nursing in 1986 as an RGN. In 1994 I became an RSCN. I have worked in adult critical care, paediatric critical care and paediatric general surgery and medicine. Along the way I successfully achieved the ENB 998 and 415 courses in 1995 and a BSc Nursing in 2001. In 2002 I left my Charge Nurse post to become a Tutor at Swansea University. In 2012 I gained an MA in Medical Humanities. I am now a Senior Lecturer in the College. My main responsibility for the past eight years is managing the MSc Advanced Practice programme.
