I was the first Chairperson for the NHS GCC Nurse Practitioners group and led the educational development and support network for independent nurses. As an autonomous member of an interdependent health care team, working within the multi-professional team, I am competent to perform the necessary technical/invasive/physical/emotional aspects of care to ensure the patient is central to resolving their predicaments effectively and speedily. I maintain my clinical skills with locum work, recent placements involved working in Isle of Raasay and Shetland and highlighted the vulnerability for all working within the community and island settings.

Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange

Contribution to Teaching on Modules: I am dynamic and forward-thinking while linking the theory to practice, inspiring students to develop relevant skills within the evolving practice and create quality and sustainable resources within the healthcare and academic professional settings. Collaborating with colleagues and students to develop independent skills, promoting active learning, and creating innovative, stimulating, supportive, and reflective environments to allow the development of cognitive, associative, and autonomous acquisitions to develop authentic skills that are transferable in the real world.

Knowledge exchange: I actively encourage a learning culture, comply with educational governance, empower students by providing a voice, and continue and grow confidence in supporting students during their academic journey. I have successfully led and transformed the student learning experience with the introduction of innovative, creative content linking scholarship activities and underpinning pedagogies with the full range of methodological perspectives to meet the evolving changing education environment.

Student Experience – I feel that I will make a positive contribution to the student experience. I believe my teaching will be of a high standard that will be easily understood when delivered and gain the trust of the student to guide and support wherever they require assistance and be open to feedback regarding my conduct. I appreciate the students’ evaluations are integral to shaping the transformative learning experience and own pedagogical development. This philosophy has been captured via various feedforward discussions and surveys as evidence to all stakeholders demonstrates the impact of teaching, learning and assessment strategies, they provide an opportunity to critically reflect on my own academic practice and rectify the variety of epistemic, sociocultural, or psychic distorted expectations.

Continuous Personal Development: I have maintained abreast of teaching and learning by attending in-house CPD, online and external workshops and conferences to ensure my evidence-based practice is current, inventive, and effective to enhance practice by leading on cross-departmental/ cross-institutional activities and events that promote inclusive and accessible practices and widening participation and increased global engagement with various events, for example;
