I am a senior lecturer within the Adult Nursing team and have worked at Christ Church for 3 years. As part of my role, I am the recruitment lead for the BSc in Adult Nursing at the Canterbury Campus. I have over 25 years' experience in nursing, working in medical wards, social services and practice nursing. Throughout my nursing career, I have always been passionate about encouraging patients to be involved and in control of their care. My enthusiasm for an enabling approach, has positively impacted on my practice as a lecturer, ensuring students are encouraged and empowered to develop into competent, confident practitioners.
