I am a lecturer within the children and young person’s nursing team, and have moved into academia following a successful children’s nursing career spanning 20 years. I am a qualified Children’s Nurse and School Nurse. I also hold a Master’s degree in Advanced Practice in Child Health and I am a nurse immuniser alongside being a community nurse prescriber. My specific areas of expertise lie in safeguarding children, public health nursing, nurse-led enuresis management, and in children’s outpatient management.
My main research interest is the role of the Children’s Nurse within safeguarding practice.
