Mrs Francina Hyatt


 I was inspired to train as a nurse when working as a healthcare assistant at the Princess Alice Hospice, and became a qualified nurse in 1989. My clinical experience includes roles in A&E, community nursing, practice nursing and walk-in centres. I am an experienced senior  lecturer having previously worked as a clinical nurse trainer for 11 years . My role includes teaching and assessing student nurses, nursing associates, return to practice students, post-registration nurses and healthcare support workers. I  co-lead on the final year skills and simulated learning module and am the HCA short courses and study day lead and am actively involved in promoting the university as a provider of education for this staff group. The role also includes networking locally and nationally with colleagues in those professions, along with writing and delivering study days. My  passion to teach and promote best practice is enabled through my ongoing nurse practitioner/non-medical prescriber role in a general practice. I  undertake all aspects of practice nursing and nurse practitioner work, referring patients to other healthcare professionals/services when required.
