Biography

Assistant Professor & International Convenor

PhD MSc PGDipCHSE BNS RGN RNT FESC

I teach across undergraduate and post-graduate nursing programmes, and professional development modules. My most recent work is centred around international curricula with projects such as 'eCoNNECT: enhanced Communication iN Nursing through Exchange of Clinical Teaching experiences' and 'TANAHE: Teaching and Assessing for Nurses and Allied Health Educators', both of which have been developed together with EU/global partners. I have developed expertise in using online / blended learning formats, and in developing multilingual study materials, producing creative media and interactive videos, and in recorded assessments to provide individualised and detailed feedback to students.  
As International Convenor, I am part of strategic developments such as expansion of undergraduate student exchanges and systematically identifying the School’s international activities. I am a Member of the Faculty International Committee. 
My research interests include nurse education, clinical decision making and advanced nursing practice / advanced practice nursing. My extensive involvements in conferences, publications and projects have led to recognition and leadership positions at prestigious discipline-specific bodies including International Council of Nurses (ICN) APN / NP Network (Deputy-Chair) and European Society of Cardiology (Fellow).   
Current memberships include
:
  • ICN NP/APN Network: Deputy-Chair, Core Steering Group
  • ESC: Association of Cardiovascular Nurses and Allied Professionals 'Education Committee Member'
  • NewNet Network European Ways of Nurse Education and Training: Board Member 
  • Irish Association of Advanced Nurse and Midwife Practitioners: Academic Member
  • Deutsches Netzwerk APN & ANP g.e.V. - International Coordinator and Board Member.
