Responsibilities

Michelle’s main responsibilities are to lead and managed the day to day running of our two campuses. I had lead responsibility to develop and write the application to secure UHI gaining Approved Educational Institution accreditation with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). This was the 1st time an HEI in the UK has had to go through this process. This I achieved in June 2016. This was followed by securing a programme approval with the NMC in August 2016. Both of these accreditations involved leadership skills in dealing with issues around areas such as; curriculum development, harmonising academic and professional regulations, QA activities, development of a strategy for the new School of Health (UHI) and in developing excellent relationships with existing staff within both universities.

I am the UHI nominated contact with the NMC and have responsibility for the quality assurance and delivery of the programme and for reporting annually to the NMC, Scottish Government Health Department and NMC.  At a national level I represent nursing on a number of NES groups for example: National Strategic Group for Practice Learning. These groups involve me contributing to strategy and policy.

Expertise

My expertise in research lies in quantitative and qualitative methodologies. I also have expertise in conducting systematic reviews. My expertise and standing within the academic community as an educationalist and educational researcher is evidenced by membership of the International Advisory Board of Nurse Education in Practice, an International Journal and as an Editorial Advisor in the leading nurse education journal, Nurse Education Today. I have been a member of the Scientific Panel on the high profile NET/NEP International Education Conference (2012, 2014, 2016, 2018).
