I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1987. I spent some time working in adult general surgery before moving to work in adult critical care. I entered education in 1995 as the course leader for the adult critical care course and specialised in critical care and neuroscience for many years. I became involved with advanced clinical practice in 2009 and for several years I have been the School's lead for advanced clinical practice. I Chair a number of Committees within the School including the Individualised Programmes Panel which deals with all aspects of APCL / APEL, credit transfer and non-standard entry.
