My Story as a Senior Lecturer

Updated: Mar 6

I am Kathleen, I am a senior lecturer and a pathway leader for the Neonatal Modules at Kingston and St. George's University London joint faculty.

My Journey

Before landing to my current role, I did a number of clinical and academe roles.

My first clinical job was in a Neonatal Unit in Birmingham. I then moved to London in 2011 to work as a Band 6 Specialist Staff Nurse in a Surgical Neonatal ICU. Whilst working for the trust, I also worked as one of their unit clinical educators. I was then seconded to do a project for Health Education England Northwest London to be one of the Band 7 Nurse Facilitators, that trained nurses in 6 NICUs within Northwest London. After this role, I became a lecturer for Children's Nursing at the University of West London, teaching on their pre-registration nursing programme.

Education has also been a big part of my career. I gained my Nursing degree in the University of Santo Tomas and worked as a nurse back in the Philippines. By 2005, I moved to the UK.
