Ms Mary Brady

Senior Lecturer


Prior to entering academia, I had extensive knowledge of the clinical care required for children and young people in a variety of settings (neonatal units, paediatric intensive care and general children wards). Whilst working clinically, I also mentored students studying pre and post registration nursing qualifications and this growing commitment to providing and promoting excellent nurse education that meets contemporary and future healthcare demands for children, young people and their families eventually led me to seek a career in academia. Since 2004, I  have been a senior lecturer in the children's nursing team and have taught pre and post registration nurses at BSc and MSc level, midwives and paramedics. 

Since 2004, I have held a variety of positions such as child team skills lead (pre 2008), branch/field lead (2008-17), assessments tutor (2016-17) and currently have a remit for quality within the children's nursing team (2017 onwards).

I have been involved with several curriculum developments, acting as the child curriculum lead for the current and previous two curricula.

Additional scholarly activity includes reviewing manuscripts for the Journal of Clinical Nursing from 2007 to present. I have also reviewed for the Journal of Nursing Ethics, Nurse Researcher and Oxford University Press.

I am currently an external examiner with Robert Gordon University (Aberdeen) and prior to that was an external examiner at Huddersfield University (September 2013 to October 2017).

I have researched and published on the preparation of first year student child nurses for their first clinical practice placements (ChiPPS).  Following on from that study, I was involved in a project to support Student Learning in their Community Experience (SLICE). I have also undertaken a study into the value of an international learning opportunity for students (OIL). Both studies have been presented at conferences and are currently awaiting publication.  Currently I am leading on a study to evaluate the potential value of using a customised workshop to generate students' knowledge and confidence to care for children and young people with mental health issues (EWES). In addition I am  also involved in a systematic review regarding research productivity amongst nurse academics.
