Margaret's career experience spans regulation, education and nursing practice. She is currently a principal lecturer and course director for the Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) in nursing two-year programme at Kingston and St George's. Previously, Margaret was the adult field lead in nursing within the BSc(Hons) three-year nursing programme. Both these roles have provided Margaret with an overview of nursing education and extensive involvement in curriculum design, academic regulations, quality and assessment. She led the design and implementation of the Pre-Registration Standards of Nursing Education (2010) into a BSc(Hons) and PGDip programme.

Margaret's teaching experience within adult nursing spans across both the acute within trauma and resuscitation and the community, through case management, long term conditions and public health. She continues to have involvement within simulation and skills.

Margaret represents St. George's University of London on the Faculty Quality Committee and the Faculty Education Committee. This gives her a faculty perspective on both quality and the teaching and learning strategy. This role has enabled Margaret to build on the implementation and evaluation of all graduate degree/postgraduate programmes.

Margaret also chairs the pre-registration assessment boards and is responsible for managing the day-to-day assessment processes both in theory and practice, from formulation of assessment criteria to marking, moderation and publication of results within the PGDip programme. She has responsibility for assuring quality of educational provision across the programme to such bodies as the NMC, QAA and HEFCE.
