Nikki Buck University of Gloucestershire, UK
Nikki joined the team at the University of Gloucestershire at the start of the academic year of 2019. Previously, she had worked for a number of years as a lecturer in a London University where she taught predominantly third year BSc students the module ‘Leading Care for Complex Patients’. The module involved developing the students’ knowledge and skills and in turn, learning to apply this in caring for complex care patients.
Nikki am privileged to say that she is a neonatal intensive care nurse and engages with the role on a regular basis; she thoroughly enjoy the exact and precise nature of caring for patients who are so small and providing support to their families. Nikki has been a member of the Bereavement Team offering support and advice to patients’ families in the most difficult situations, as well as to professional colleagues. This developed her interest in ergonomics which she have researched throughout her MSC studies. Nikki is passionate about being involved in the provision of excellent education to the future healthcare professional.
