Nikki Lloyd-Jones

Senior Lecturer in Nursing

Picture of staff member

Nikki has twenty years of experience working in the clinical field and employed as a specialist nurse with a range of responsibilities for surgical missions in South America, Sarajevo and Gaza.

As an academic she has a particular interest in identity and decision-making with her PhD highlighting problems with methods for preparing nurses to be ‘accountable’ practitioners. Recommendations included proposing an innovative approach for research and practice as a narrative dialectic. Using ethnomethodology (Garfinkel 2004) as a lens for making the ‘mundane’ or ordinary everyday language a focus for interpretation, her study is an articulation of the value of ‘conversation’ (Gadamer 2004). The aim is to evaluate personal and professional standards  used in our everyday decision-making.

Her teaching  focusses on the research process as a means for developing a disciplined  approach to generating evidenced based arguments. She is passionate about  inspiring creativity, curiosity and independent learning by encouraging  critical thinking. Over the past ten years Nikki has been a lead researcher on a  range of funded projects from ‘transition to becoming a civilian’, influences on decision-making in hospital transfer', ‘reflective  entrepreneurship, an empowerment initiative’.
