Sara White

Sara qualified as a registered nurse in 1986, after which she worked in Acute Trauma and Orthopaedics before moving to Intensive care (ICU) and Coronary care. She worked in a number of ICUs in London and the south of England and gained multiple qualifications (including General Intensive Care Nursing, Principles of Intensive Care (Paediatrics), BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies and Diploma in Health Service Management). Having spent ten years as an ICU Sister she moved into Higher Education where she has been for twenty years. During her time in HE she has facilitated the learning of many thousands of students at both undergraduate level and postgraduate level, whilst at the same time continuing her own education to Doctorate level. She believes that as a nurse educator she should strive to enable students to fuse their learning and integrate education, professional practice and research in order to develop as future nurses and enhance the care they offer patients.
