Jenny Stewart

Senior Lecturer, Public Health and Wellbeing

After undertaking my undergraduate nursing diploma at Sheffield University I worked in Nottingham University Hospital within cardiothoracic surgery and adult critical care. In 2003 I began training and working as an advanced practitioner within the surgical team which had an elective colorectal speciality and general surgical emergencies. In 2012 I relocated to Chester and worked as part of the colorectal nursing team. My role was split between my advanced practice and a cancer nurse specialist role. I joined the university early in 2016 and my main education role is within the advanced practice team on the MSC programme, although I have leading the first year skills module. My future role will also include being a team member of the non-medical prescribing programme.

Qualifications

Teaching

On the pre-registration nursing programme I am the module leader for NM4201 1st year skills and NM5212 2nd year skills.
 
I am module leader for NM 7202 – clinical examination skills and I teach on the clinical diagnostics module NM7201 and the non-medical prescribing modules
 
Most recently I have joined the public health department and I will be bringing an advanced practice perspective into the modules within this department.

Research

My research interests include nurse led services / advanced practice and once my own academic study is complete I hope to return to be more involved in this.

I am currently undertaking my PGCE which is due to end May 2017. I hope to quickly obtain my HEA fellow status and register with the NMC as a teacher.
