Tim has been registered as a nurse for over thirty years and spent the first few years of his career in hospitals, working in a variety of medical and surgical wards before specialising in cardiology.

Since 1992, Tim has worked full-time in nurse education. His initial teaching roles were focussed on his clinical background in acute care and the application of physiological and biomedical knowledge. Over the years those interests have evolved to include professional, ethical and legal issues, research methods and evidence-based practice, and health policy in nursing. During that time Tim has been programme leader for a variety of pre-registration and short courses

Tim's current teaching responsibilities cover two main roles, as module co-ordinator for an undergraduate module in policy, politics and nursing, and as programme leader for Return to Practice: Nursing. As well as those he teaches and assesses on a variety of undergraduate nursing modules.  In addition to those teaching responsibilities Tim is active as a case officer in the investigation of academic misconduct and fitness to practise, a role which compliments his interests in professional behaviour and standards.
