Nurses Day: Sign up for Professor of Nurse Education Practice lecture

Categories: School of Health and Society

Join Professor of Nurse Education Practice, Jacqueline Leigh as she discusses her thoughts around future curriculum possibilities for nursing, as part of the Salford Lecture Series.


Titled ‘The Future of Nurse Education Practice: Imagining the art of the possible,' the Lecture is open to the public, students and staff. 

Jackie is looking forward to sharing her journey from student nurse to Professor of Nurse Education Practice, as well as introducing some of the key influencers and influences along the way. 

Jackie has significant experience in developing and evaluating innovative curricula that meets workforce needs in health and social care.

She works across Greater Manchester creating opportunities for the development of the healthcare workforce around nursing and interprofessional supervision and assessment in practice.

Jackie said: “I will use my Inaugural Lecture as an opportunity to engage the audience to explore the future of practice learning and nurse education, hence introducing my mindset of always imagining the art of the possible!"

“The lecture is timely given the recent Nursing and Midwifery Council survey that sought the views and input of public groups, professionals and our partners around the UK about their current education programme standards and whether they should be changed.

"It comes because the UK is no longer required to follow EU law on requirements for nursing and midwifery education programmes following the end of the EU exit transition period.

“Timely too is the launch of the Greater Manchester Health and Care Learning Environment Strategy 2021-2024, the supporting 3-year implementation plan and how they align to professional and political policy such as the National People Plan.”

The Lecture will take place on Thursday 27 May from 1pm to 2pm via Teams.
