Personal profile

Biography

I completed my education as a Registered General Nurse at Dewsbury School of Nursing 1986-1989 and held different clinical nursing positions in acute and critical care nursing from 1989 until 2002. In 1995 I completed a BSc(Hons) in Nursing studies and then in 1998 completed an MSc / PG Cert in Health Education to devop my interest in education and it's influence on clinical practice. In 1999 I joined the University of Huddersfield on a part time dual position of Lecturer Practitioner.  My responsibilities were divided between those of Senior Practitioner in Accident and Emergency and Senior Lecturer in the University of Huddersfield. In 2002 I became a full time Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing at the University of Huddersfield. In March 2017 I was awarded the Doctor of Philosophy following the completion of a PhD that explored simulation as a learning strategy in undergraduate nursing.
