Jennifer Bate


School of Health, Science and Wellbeing

My healthcare experience started out working as a health care assistant in an elderly care home for 5 years, where I completed my NVQ’s in care and progressed my application for nursing.

I qualified as a registered nurse with Staffordshire University in 2003. I initially worked in acute medicine and subsequently specialised in Infection Prevention & Control with experience working in acute, community and commissioning organisations. I’m passionate about preventing healthcare associated infection, antimicrobial stewardship, and patient safety and keen to ensure these aspects are included in learning through simulation.

I feel very privileged to be back where I studied and be part of the team in teaching and developing our future healthcare professionals.
