Current Teaching

  • Undergraduate Nursing


I have recently migrated to Australia from the UK and I am a Registered Nurse in both General and Children’s specialities and currently hold registration in the UK, New Zealand and Australia. I also hold a Neonatal Nursing qualification. I have extensive experience in both Nursing and Lecturing in Higher Education. My senior clinical roles were as a Ward Manager of a large Children’s Medical Unit and Neonatal ICU management experience. My previous lecturing role in the UK before migrating was firstly as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Chester and then as Deputy Head of Department for the Community and Child Health Department in the Faculty of Health and Social Care.
