My career experience spans nurse education, nursing and professional practice, ensuring that risks are controlled in meeting standards set out by the professional and statutory regulatory bodies. I am currently an Associate Professor, Integrated Practice. The role holds responsibility for leading on the bespoke/customised work within the school of nursing, networking and collaborating with practice partners, HEI and voluntary/private sectors to negotiate a flexible model of education that meets the needs of clinical practice adhering to the organisations Strategic Plan. I support the Director for Workforce Development and the Head of School of Nursing to undertake additional strategic roles while monitoring the HEI external business needs.  

 Before this, I was Principal Lecturer and Course Director for the Post Graduate Diploma (PgDip) in Nursing/Registered Nurse at Kingston University (KU) and St George's, University London (SGUL).  My previous role was as Senior Lecturer, Adult Field Lead in nursing within the BSc (Hons) three year pre-registration nursing programme. Both these roles have provided me with an overview of nursing education and professional practice with extensive involvement in curriculum design, academic regulations, quality and assessments. I led the design and implementation of the Nursing and Midwifery Council Pre-Registration Standards of Nursing Education (2010) into the current BSc (Hons) and PgDip programmes and have continued to led on the 2016/19 re-validation for the MSc in Nursing/Registered Nursing two year programme.

I have been involved in the implementation nationally within the HEE funded "CapitalNurse"  "vision into  getting nursing right for London"; this initiative is looking at ensuring that London has the right number of nurses, with the right skills in the right place, working to deliver excellent nursing wherever it is needed.

 My teaching experience within adult nursing spans both acute care within Trauma and Resuscitation and the community, through Case Management, Long Term Conditions and Public Health.  I am involved in workforce development education through the development of bespoke programmes to meet workforce and changing service needs within health and social care settings.   I am involved in the delivery of simulation and clinical skills through learning and teaching. I have supported through course leader roles the quality of nurse educational provision and have provided across the school of nursing strategic leadership.
