School of Nursing, Midwifery and Public Health

Jenny qualified as a registered nurse with a Bachelor of Nursing (Adult) from Southampton University in 2007. From there, she worked in cardiothoracic Critical Care at Papworth Hospital, which she thoroughly enjoyed. She got involved in caring for patients with unique and complex conditions not widely seen or treated in many hospitals. Jenny moved to Bury St Edmunds in 2010 and worked within A+E for a brief time before heading back to Critical Care at Addenbrookes, completing her Intensive Care Course at level 7 at the University of Hertfordshire.

Due to a change in personal circumstances, Jenny had a change in career direction in 2014 when she joined community nursing. From this point, she has not looked back, completing her Degree in District Nursing in January 2020 to become a Specialist Practitioner in District Nursing. Her passion for community nursing, particularly around wound care and palliative care, is something she hopes to use to inspire future nurses to consider the community as a future career option.

Jenny has worked with student nurses throughout her career as a registered nurse and has enjoyed the challenge this brings. She has developed induction packs in several of her roles and became an assessor as soon as the support system for student nurses changed.

During her District Nurse training, Jenny was able to be a key part of the team, introducing sepsis and deteriorating patient training as mandatory for community nursing.

Jenny joined the University of Suffolk in September 2022. She is currently working towards her Post Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice. As a dyslexic student herself, she has a particular interest in inclusivity and supporting those with additional needs within Higher Education.
