My current role is as a lecturer on the undergraduate BSc Hons Nursing programme at the University with a focus on professional practice, high dependency care of the child, digital professionalism and complex and acute care in Child Health. I hold module lead roles, organising teaching and learning activity across fields of practice and teaching sites within the SouthWest. 

As an admissions tutor for Child Nursing the emerging role of the nurse is of particular interest to me helping to create and manage health care professionals of the future. 


I have been a qualified Children's nurse since 1995 working in a full range of clinical settings including Paediatric Intensive Care and Acute Children's areas, I have also held specialist roles in community respiratory and end of life care for children and young people. Whilst my main role is teaching within the University I also work clinically on the acute children's wards at the Royal Cornwall Hospital.
