You will contribute to modules in the pre-registration undergraduate BSc & MSc Programmes, as well as the Registered Nurse Apprenticeship & Nursing Associate programme and on postgraduate modules related to your own expertise. You will also provide support to students during periods of practice placements and act as an academic assessor and facilitate clinical supervision.
