Research from Gannon-Willmott, Chelsea
My name is Chelsea and I am a nursing lecture and course coordinator, a locum emergency & trauma nurse, an academic and am currently completing my nurse practitioner training through Otago University.
For most of my career, I have moved between working in large emergency and trauma units and working within the rural emergency and after-hours context. My nursing role has enabled me to work not only in New Zealand, but also the United States, the UK and Australia. I am very passionate about nursing, and simply love the diversity and challenges that the role brings, especially to the rural context. At present, I work between Central Otago (which is home) and Dunedin's School of Nursing.
To date, my research has been centred on workplace culture/dynamics, horizontal violence, new graduates and coping and longevity/job satisfaction in nursing within the rural healthcare context.
Above all, I thoroughly enjoy providing thought provoking dialogue that helps people reflect and develop and look at the crumbs under the carpet! I look forward to working with you all soon, and helping you along your nursing journey.
