Vikki is a Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing and currently teaches across undergraduate and postgraduate Nursing programmes. She is an academic mentor to a class of adult nursing students and is a visiting lecturer in practice, and thereby supports students throughout their clinical and academic studies.

Vikki’s research interests currently focus upon interprofessional learning, specifically, within the clinical environment of critical care and in relation to the continual professional development of healthcare practitioners. Principal areas of scholarly interest include simulation based education, communication and interpersonal skills, and clinical skills development.

Vikki is also interested in the use of creative writing in relation to health care experiences, reflection and practitioner development. She has been recently published in an anthology of poetry and delivered regional and national workshops on this topic, as well as being awarded the BACCN 2016 National Poster Prize.
