I am the Associate Professor for Practice Learning in the Institute of Health and Social Care representing the Institute and the School of Nursing and Midwifery in a variety of regional and national forums including the Pan London Practice Learning Group and the Placement Strategic Oversight Group, a sub-committee of the London Higher Education Group. Within my remit, I have responsibility for the strategic development of undergraduate nursing practice and practice learning governance.

I studied in Leeds completing a BSc (Hons) in Nursing to become a registered nurse and subsequently worked in various Intensive Care Units in Leeds and London for nearly 10 years. I completed an MA in Nursing Studies at the University of Brighton in 2002 and in the same year joined LSBU as a Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing teaching medical/surgical nursing, critical care nursing, medicines management and clinical skills. In 2011, I took up the newly created post of Senior Lecturer in Practice Learning, before taking over my current position in 2017.

I undertook a PhD at London South Bank University completing my doctorate in 2015 entitled, ‘Newly qualified nurse transition: stress experiences and stress-mediating factors – a longitudinal study’. The research utilised a longitudinal, mixed methods research design to investigate the stressors and transition experience of newly qualified nurses over their first 12 months post-qualifying and the potentially stress-mediating effects of resilience, hardiness and coping strategies. I have since published on this and other nursing practice areas of interest. I have supervised doctoral students and have been an internal and external doctoral viva voce examiner.
