I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a Diploma in Higher Education in Adult Nursing in 2010. Since qualifying, I have worked within the Accident and Emergency Department and General Practice as a Nursing Sister and Nursing Mentor. During my first registered role as a Staff Nurse within the Accident and Emergency Department, I undertook my BSC/Hon in Professional Studies in Health and Social Care part-time at the University of Bolton, graduating with a 2:1 in 2015, included within this was the completion of the Advanced Professional Development Module, Preparation for Mentorship. This was important to me as it gave me a greater understanding of the broader aspects of assessment within a health and social care context. I entered onto the NMC register following my Dip/HE in Nursing to which I have remained an active registrant, with my next revalidation being due in 2019. Since entering the register, I have maintained the values and principles of being a qualified nurse in everything I undertake and on a daily basis when interacting with patients and other colleagues. I completed the PGCE (M) at the University of Bolton, undertaking my placement here as a PGCE student. I was successful following completing of this in gaining a post as a Nursing Lecturer at the University. I currently work with the Health and Social Care Team as the Foundation Year Lead for the BSc Health and Social Care (With Foundation Year).
