Joanne Fisher

Nursing and Allied Health

After qualifying as a registered nurse in 2005 from King's College University, London, I have worked clinically in coronary care and cardiothoracic intensive care across Cheshire and Merseyside, later moving into community nursing as a practice nurse and later as an advanced practitioner. Having always had a passion for education, I moved into higher education in 2018 and have taught undergraduate nursing students and post graduate nurses and allied health professionals.

I have experience in teaching clinical examination, diagnostics, pathophysiology at level 7 and support postgraduate students in a personal tutor capacity. I currently module lead Pathophysiology, Evidence-Based Competence (apprenticeship route), the Advanced Practice Project (apprenticeship route) and Co-ordinating Safe, Quality Care (MSc Accelerated PRN route).

My research interests are health inequality, pedagogy and creating a diverse and inclusive workforce.
