I am currently the Academic Course Lead for the BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing for the University of Gloucestershire, this is a new programme for the University with our first students who commenced in September 2017.


My previous role as senior lecturer at UWE over the last ten years has included responsibilities such as programme leader (Gloucester), interviewing prospective students, module leadership, academic personal tutor role, and previously year tutor, academic in practice and to develop and lead high fidelity inter professional simulation and introduction of standardised patients within adult nursing.
