Governor's Personal Statement

Dr Gemma Stacey qualified as a mental health nurse in 2004 after completing the undergraduate Master of Nursing program at the University of Nottingham. She went onto work for the Nottinghamshire Healthcare Trust in a range of recovery orientated community servicers. In 2006 Gemma commenced a part time research post at the University of Nottingham which involved managing an action research project exploring service user involvement in the assessment of student nurses in practice (SUSA). She has gone onto implement and evaluate a range of educational initiatives centred on lived experience. This complements Gemma's doctoral research interest in the socialisation of student nurses and the educational factors which influence the development, maintenance and expression of person centred values. She is the leader of the Critical Values Based Practice Network who conduct research into this area along with an explicit focus on the perception and influence of power and hierarchy amongst professional groups. Gemma is currently employed as an Associate Professor in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Nottingham where she is the Lead for Graduate Entry Nursing.
