Dr Jenni Templeman

Senior Lecturer, Interprofessional Education

My career in clinical nursing practice spans many years working in intensive care units in both southern and northern hemisphere countries and the aviation (helicopter & fixed wing) trauma services in the southern hemisphere. My remit included roles as a professional nurse, intensive care unit manager and practice education facilitator. A few years ago, my role extended to academia when I joined the University of Chester.

Qualifications

D. Prof (Health and Social Care), FHEA, M Research, PG Cert (Professional Education), BSc Nursing, Dip Intensive Care Nursing Science, RM, RN.

I am a member of the NMC, RCN and HEA.

I am Chairperson for the Cheshire and Mersey Critical Care Network (2008).

Teaching

I am the Deputy Programme Leader for MSc and BSc programmes in Professional Practice.

Currently I am the module leader for NM6400, NM6004, NM5202 and NM5201 and teach both undergraduate and postgraduate students on various modules.  I teach on the Professional Doctorate in Health and Social Care.

My teaching remit covers both undergraduate and postgraduate studies and I supervise BSc, BN, Master degree and Doctorate students. I am committed to ensuring the quality of the student learning experience and to ensuring that nursing education has a rigorous evidence- base. My main area of expertise in teaching and learning is in critical care nursing, traumatology and research.

Research

I am interested in exploring the sociological and anthropological aspects of critical care nursing, research, evidence -based practice and cultural awareness in nursing and health care. My doctoral thesis was an ethnographic study of nurses’ experiences following the decision to withdrawal treatment in critically ill patients in a British ICU. The topic of my masters in research dissertation explored the evidence-based concept concerning daily sedation vacation in ventilated patients in the ICU.
