Professional Lead for Practice Learning.
I started my training at Alder Hey Childrens (Paediatrics) and Broadgreen (Adult) hospitals in 1975 qualifying as a registered nurse in both adult and paediatric nursing in 1979. My first staff nurses post was on a surgical cardiothoracic ward at Broadgreen. I went on to specialise in Intensive Care and became a ward sister in 1982 on the Intensive Care unit at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
I transferred into nurse education in 1985 working as a registered clinical teacher on medical, surgical and intensive care units at both the Royal and Broadgreen. I become a registered nurse teacher in 1989 and transferred into higher education at Liverpool Polytechnic from the Royal in 1991.
I initially worked as a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer teaching mainly essential clinical skills on the pre registration programmes across all fields. Although I continued to develop expertise and teach in this area I also facilitated Law and Professional Accountability modules and sessions on a number of programmes including Pre Registration Nursing, Non Medical Prescribing, Contraception and Reproductive Sexual Health, Tissue Viability and numerous other short courses.
In 2001, I was appointed as a Clinical Liaison Lecturer at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals Trust supporting students and their mentors in the practice placement arena. In 2003 I was appointed as a Principle Lecturer at the then School of Nursing at the Faculty of Health and Applied Social Sciences. During a reorganisation of the Faculty I was appointed as Head of Practice Learning across the Faculty. I have overall responsibility for placement issues including capacity and quality assurance across all programmes with mandatory practice placement components. This includes all pre registration nursing provision, paramedic and social work programmes.
