Yvonne is a Senior Lecturer in Practice Learning, taking a strategic and operational lead in practice learning, including new placement development, for the pre-registration Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health programmes. In addition, Yvonne supervises BSc (Hons), Masters and Doctoral students.
Prior to this appointment, Yvonne was a Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing at LSBU for over eight years teaching medical/surgical nursing, critical care nursing, medicines management and clinical skills to pre-registration adult field nursing students. Yvonne was also a clinical link lecturer to nursing students during their practice learning.
Before joining LSBU, Yvonne worked for nearly 10 years as an Intensive Care nurse in Leeds, where she originally trained as a nurse, and in various Intensive Care Units across London.
In 2015, Yvonne completed her PhD entitled, ‘Newly qualified nurse transition: stress experiences and stress-mediating factors – a longitudinal study’. The research utilised a longitudinal, mixed methods research design to investigate the stressors and transition experience of newly qualified adult field nurses over their first 12 months post-qualifying and the potentially stress-mediating effects of resilience, hardiness, coping strategies and social support.
Yvonne's PhD thesis (2015) is entitled 'Newly qualified nurse transition: stress experiences and stress-mediating factors – a longitudinal study'.
