About Pat

ACADEMIC coach & proofreader

Hi, I’m Pat and I am passionate about helping learners to develop and enhance their academic work.

My experience

I was a senior lecturer in nursing for many years; teaching, marking and supporting student nurses in both their academic as well as professional practice. I have a Doctorate in Education on the topic of Continuing Professional Development. I have published and presented my work at many conferences. I am a reviewer for a professional nursing journal.

As a qualified nurse, I worked in clinical practice in the NHS for many years, gaining experience and qualifications in intensive care; and as a ward sister in surgery and care of the older person. On moving into Higher Education I thrived on enabling others to learn; leading a Master’s course in mentorship and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education for nurses and midwives.
