    Senior Lecturer Nursing

    About me

    I have been working as an academic since 2007 and have been part of the nursing discipline at Murdoch since 2009. As a lecturer in nursing  I coordinate and teach into undergraduate units in the Bachelor of Nursing (BN) program. I have twenty years of clinical nursing experience in a variety of clinical areas in Wales, England and Australia.

    I graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1996 in one of the first University based nursing programs in Cardiff, Wales and completed my BA (Hons) in Accident and Emergency Nursing in 1999. I continued to develop my academic and nursing career with completion of my Masters of Advanced Nursing Practice in 2006 and have completed my PhD at Murdoch University in 2015.

    My teaching philosophy is based on the concepts of caring and professionalism. I aim to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to care for people in a compassionate, considerate and knowledgeable manner whilst upholding the professional integrity of nursing.

    Emergency nursing and Aggression and Violence education are my key areas of interest
