I began my career in 2004 as a volunteer in a nursery, before becoming a qualified nursery nurse, which enabled me to obtain the relevant level qualifications for entry on to a nursing degree in 2010.
I completed my BSc Hons Degree in Children’s nursing in 2013 at Edge Hill University, before going on to complete my Post Graduate Diploma in Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (Health Visiting) and nurse prescribing qualification here at The University of Bolton in January 2015.
I worked for a short time as a health visitor before being asked to teach a module here part-time in the evenings. I then started full time as a lecturer here at The University of Bolton in November 2015.
Since being at the university I have completed my Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, my NMC teaching qualification and I am a fellow with the HEA.
Most recently I have completed my Community Public Health Nursing Masters Degree. I now hope to commence Doctorate level study in Autumn 2018.
