Biography

I qualified as a general nurse in St Michael's Hospital, Dun Laoghaire and as a psychiatric nurse in St John of God's Hospital, Stillorgan Dublin.

My clinical nursing experience spans almost 15 years and is diverse, encompassing coronary care, intensive care, accident and emergency, medical, surgical and mixed clinical areas. I ultimately specialised in Coronary Care Nursing in St Vincent's University Hospital before undertaking a BNS and moving into the area of nurse education.

Prior to working in UCD in 2002, I had nearly 10-years experience in pre-registration nurse-education in St Vincent's University Hospital, Dublin.
As a member of the National Implementation Committee for Pre-Registration Nurse Education, I was actively involved in the development and changes in pre and post-registration nurse-education and in the advancement of the Centres of Nurse Education.
Currently I am Director of the UCD Graduate Diploma Nursing: Critical Care (Cardiovascular) programme and my teaching and clinical practice interest areas are cardiovascular nursing,  cardiac arrest management and nursing theory, specifically the standardised language nursing languages  NANDA-I NIC and NOC.

From 2007-2012 I served as an elected member of An Bord Altranais (ABA), was a member of ABA's Education and Training, Finance and General Purpose and Ethics Committee.  I am currently  a member of the 1985 Act ABA Fitness to Practice Committee.  I also served as an appointed member of the National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery for ten years and  was a member of the Working Group of European Nurse Researchers (WENR) until it was inactivated in 2011.

I have had a life-long interest in improving survival for cardiac arrest and was a member of the Irish Heart Foundation's National BLS Technical Committee and  currently serve on National Faculty.
