Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing in the Department of Nursing and Midwifery and have worked at the University since August 2005. I qualified as a Registered General Nurse (RGN) in 1987 having completed my training at Staincliffe General Hospital (now Dewsbury & District Hospital). Shortly after qualifying I got a post as a Staff Nurse on the newly opened Intensive Care Unit at Dewsbury & District Hospital. By 1993, I was working as a Charge Nurse on the ICU/CCU and began working part time as a Resuscitation Officer, sharing the responsibilities with a colleague. I continued in these two roles until 1999 when I took on the Resuscitation Officer role full time. I remained in this post until August 2005 when I left to take up my current role with the University.

I teach across the pre and post-registration nursing courses as well as contributing to other health professional courses here at the University. I am course leader for the PgCert Critical Care.

My main research interests include nursing education, acute and critical care nursing, including resuscitation, and the use of simulation-based learning in health professional education, in terms of student learning, faculty development, and how SBL can best be designed and delivered.
