Background

Claudia qualified as a Registered Adult Nurse in Germany (2001), where she initially worked in an Acute Inpatient Mental Health Ward. In 2002/2003, during her travels around Australia, she worked some of the time as a community support worker in Sydney.

Claudia moved to England and joined the NHS at the beginning of 2004. For the last 18 years, she had worked on a level 2 Neonatal Unit, continuing her professional development from Staff Nurse to Senior Staff Nurse, Deputy Sister and Ward Manager. Following her appointment with ARU as a lecturer for children’s nursing, she continued to work clinical, as a deputy sister, when possible. 

Claudia has a special interest in addressing the issue of lateral violence in nursing and the impact it has on the mental wellbeing of nursing staff, workplace retention and patient safety.

In 2020, Claudia successfully completed the HEE/ICA Pre-Masters Internship in Health Research.
