I have extensive clinical and academic experience since graduation. 13 years' variety of surgical settings, 3 years as Lecturer Practitioner and 13 years as a Senior Lecturer. Areas of interest focus upon the learners and staff experiences both within the University and practice setting, and in particular: - Team-Based Learning - personal tutor - assessment in practice - supporting learners with specific learning differences - student experiences in placement and the NMC standards (2018) - how failure can help students succeed - vulnerability within nursing.
