Madeleine Jenkins


Before joining Buckinghamshire New University in 2021, I worked for 3 years as a Course Leader and Lecturer teaching on an Access to HE (Nursing and Healthcare Professionals) course. I delivered a range of subjects including psychology, ethics, epidemiology, health and sociology; I was also involved in moderation processes and recruitment. Whilst in this role I completed a Diploma in Education and Training.

In 1995 I qualified as a Registered Nurse at University College Hospital in London. Following qualification, I have studied and gained qualifications in a variety of areas. I have completed courses and gained qualifications in Health and Social Care, Child Development and Palliative Care at the Open University, gained a specialist Day Surgery qualification at the University of Herts in 1997 and a Preceptorship qualification at Oxford Brookes University in 2017. I am also a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (School Nurse) and Community Prescriber after achieving a 1st class Hons BSc degree in this specialism at Buckinghamshire New University in 2015.

I have been registered with the NMC since 1995 as an RGN, and am registered as a Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (School Nurse) since 2015. Throughout my nursing career, I have worked in a variety of acute and community settings. My most recent post was as a School Nurse supporting the physical and emotional wellbeing of students in a school that taught over 2000 students. My general area of interest is public health, and more specifically, motivation; both in the field of public health and in teaching undergraduate nurses.

My specialist knowledge has enabled me to work with a range of professionals in both health and education. I am currently involved in a collaborative qualitative research study exploring the barriers and enablers for progression to Health and Social Care careers for disadvantaged/under-represented students studying in Further Education (FE) Colleges.
