Grace Greenwood
Clinical Teaching Fellow - Nursing



Grace began learning the fundamentals of care through carer/HCA roles from the age of 17. She went on to complete the BSc Nursing (Adult) programme at the University of York and welcomed the challenge of being drafted in as an Aspirant Nurse to help with the Covid-19 pandemic.  

Grace pursued her interests in acute and emergency care by completing a rotation in a newly qualified post on AMU and ED at York Hospital. During her time as a practice assessor, it became evident that her passion was to enhance the student nurse experience and advocate a positive future for nurse education. 

18 months after qualifying, Grace was appointed as a Clinical Teaching Fellow in partnership with the University of York and York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHSFT. She spends most of her time at the University delivering the undergraduate nursing programme across academic and
simulation modules. Grace uses her remaining time at York hospital to support students meet programme requirements in clinical practice, and easing the transition period for newly qualified nurses.
