Area of academic expertise - outline
I am a registered nurse with a background in critical care nursing. My particular area of interest is the support and development of non-technical skills in newly qualified nurses and how these will align to the new transforming nursing roles.
Current research activities
I am currently looking to explore the use of General Practice Nurse environments as practice learning placements for Year 3 student nurses. There are currently 5 Year 3 students out on placement within these settings and an evaluation of this project will be carried out. I hope to conduct focus groups to explore experiences of these placements from both a student and GPN perspective.
Desired research direction
I am interested in exploring the support and development of non-technical skills for student nurses and newly qualified nurses. I am keen to publsh work with regard to the GPN practice learning environment project I am leading.
Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange
I have begun filming to put together an advertising video to try to encourage males to entre the nursing profession. I would be interested to explore whether this video, once edited and distributed, does indeed help to increase the number of males applying to study adult nursing.
