I began my nursing career at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital(RPAH) in 1979 and graduated as a registered nurse in 1982. I worked in the Intensive Care Unit at RPAH before moving to St George Hospital to work in the School of Nursing teaching student nurses. I returned to RPAH to take up a position as the clinical educator for the Neurosurgical Intensive Care and the Neurosurgical and Neuromedical wards. During this time I completed a Certificate in Intensive Care Nursing at the College of Nursing.
While I was a clinical educator my passion for education was ignited and I moved to the College of Nursing to co-ordinate the Certificate in Intensive Care Nursing. While at the College of Nursing I held several positions including Course Co-ordinator – Critical Care Nursing, Project Coordinator for curriculum and accreditation and Manager of Education Development.
I have extensive experience in post-graduate nursing education and have had opportunities to work with many clinical experts in a wide range of specialties. My clinical interests include acute and critical care nursing with a particular interest in neuroscience nursing, ventilation and clinical assessment. I also have a keen interest in teaching and learning in higher education and e-learning.
I completed a Bachelor of Nursing in 1997, a Masters in Education in 2004 and a Post Graduate Certificate in Higher Education in e-Learning in 2009.
