Jayne Taghzouit is nurse lecturer who has been in the profession of nursing for 40 years.

During this time there has been significant change in both healthcare and education, and Jayne is proud to still be a passionate driving force amongst those changes.

She has been instrumental in developing new nursing programmes in response to the requirement for all nurses to be educated to degree level.

More recently she has been involved in the development of a new degree nurse apprenticeship programme aimed at widening access to nursing to those who previously hadn't considered it an eligible career pathway.
