I commenced my role as an Adult Nurse lecturer in 2014, whilst undertaking my PGCE and MA in Education which I completed in 2016.

My clinical experience predominantly relates to Plastics Trauma which is a speciality I am passionate about and teach as a component of a post graduate Tissue viability module. I also have clinical experience in Burns rehabilitation.

There are many components of my role including module lead for the pre-registration module: Introduction to professional practice. I also lead the Postgraduate module: Teaching , learning and assessing  for Physicians associates.

Further to this, I am also an admissions tutor and clinical placement link lecturer for a variety of clinical areas.

Development encompasses both personal and professional aspects as one cannot be separated from the other.
