Miss Kathleen Mangahis


I have over 20 years of clinical nursing and education experience here and abroad. I have previous experience of teaching on the pre-registration Children's Nursing Course where I have been nominated for an award for College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare Lecturer of the Year.  I am the Pathway Leader for the Neonatal Modules and a link lecturer for Children's Nursing students in St. Georges Hospital.    

Prior to venturing into teaching in Higher Education I have worked as a Neonatal Network Facilitator, under a project by Health Education England Northwest London.  The role enabled me to work in 6 different Neonatal Units within Northwest London facilitating newly qualified band 5 nurses and nurses new to speciality offering face to face training and support.  I have also been part of the working group of Pan London Educators that put together the Pan London Band 5 Competency Book for Neonatal Nurses during my time as a unit practice educator.  I have also have specialisation in Neonatal Surgery and worked in a level 3 Surgical NICU.

Teaching and learning

My passion is teaching children's and neonatal nursing.  I have previously taught on Children's Nursing Modules and Science based modules such as Anatomy and Physiology, Altered Physiology, pharmacology, decision-making, simulation and nursing skills for all speciality.  I have also supervised students on their level 6 dissertations and taught on research related modules.  

I have interest in innovative teaching as well as inter-professional learning.  I previously developed a teaching pack for cannulation and venepuncture for pre-registration students in my previous role, which is a fulfillment of the requirements for the MSc Advanced Practice.  The learning pack included an e-learning module as well as theory and practice skills resources.
