Katherine James

Senior Lecturer

School of Health, Science and Wellbeing

I have been a nurse for over thirty years. I trained within the Royal Navy where I worked as a nurse for 28 years. My nursing career is very mixed spanning both primary care and secondary care but mainly as an intensive care/coronary care nurse. I have worked all over the world in various hospitals and trauma environments and have a keen interest in trauma and wounds. I have been a qualified nurse lecturer for fourteen years teaching nurses, doctors, paramedics, health care assistants, I especially enjoy working in the skills labs. When not nursing my passions are my horses, dog and family.
