Sheena Bynoe is a Lecturer in the Department of Child and Family Health. She first qualified as a registered general nurse from Napier University in 1995 and worked as a staff nurse in acute adult surgery before embarking on an 18-month conversion course to become a paediatric nurse.

It was during this programme that her passion for emergency nursing emerged, resulting in a move to London upon completion of the programme to take up a position in a major trauma centre. During her time in the emergency setting, she developed an interest in safeguarding.

She moved into academia in 2005 and focused her teaching on safeguarding children, assessment and management of the acutely unwell child and well as simulated practice. She also became an NSPCC accredited trainer.

Her commitment to education has been recognised by a Masters in Academic Practice awarded in 2008, followed by a Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy in 2015.

Currently, she is the programme lead for the BSc (Hons) in Nursing with Registration as a Children’s Nurse.
