Possible postgraduate research opportunites

  • Given the current debates about Nursing Associates, I would be interested in supervising students who wish to research the history of the State Enrolled Nurse - perhaps as an oral history project. Please email me if you think that you would be interested in undertaking such a project

Methodological knowledge
