I am currently a Lecturer with the BSc Adult Nursing programme at the University of the West of Scotland (Lanarkshire campus). I am also the site lead for Practice Learning Experience for Part 1 students as well as the site lead for the SafeMedicate system, an interactice programme that actively supports students in their competence on drug calculations. Furthermore, I am also one of the CPD trainer within the university.
I am a registered Nurse-Teacher with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and a Fellow of the Advance Higher Education Academy (Advance HEA).
I have successfully completed my Post Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice at the University of the West of Scotland. I have also completed MSc in Advancing Nursing Practice at the University of Edinburgh in 2013. As part of my MSc, I have researched the use of e-portfolio and technology in the workplace. I have utilized this to create an online teaching portfolio for pre-registration nurses whilst in placement in the acute stroke unit.
My research interests are e-portfolio, educational technology and stroke care and management.
