Hilary Walsgrove

Treasurer

Bournemouth University

I work as programme leader for Masters level ANP programme and will assume responsibility for the new MSc Advanced Clinical Practice programme for AHPs and Midwives, commencing this year. I also work in practice as a project lead for a local Trust, developing an advanced practice framework and as such, have a strategic role for advanced practice development. I maintain clinical practice as an ANP in pre-op assessment within my Trust hours. I have undertaken a PGDip in practice education and MA Professional Development, my dissertation being about advanced nursing. I am currently undertaking a Professional Doctorate that focuses on advanced practice. I feel I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise from a practice and educational perspective and, keep up-to-date and work on a daily basis in both arenas. I am passionate about the practice and education of advanced practitioners and this maintains my enthusiasm and commitment to trying to make a difference and as a positive voice for advanced practice. I have been a member of AAPE UK committee for several years, most recently as treasurer. I believe that AAPE UK is a forum through which my energy and enthusiasm for advanced practice can be tapped and my knowledge and expertise put to good use in a wider arena.
