Biography

Dr Linda Gregory joined Western Sydney University in 2013. Linda has had considerable teaching experience in both the clinical context as a Nurse Educator and in the tertiary environment, with undergraduate and postgraduate nursing programs. With an industry career involvement in the nursing profession spanning over 35 years, Linda has worked in major tertiary referral acute care hospitals in Sydney as a clinical nurse, clinical nurse specialist, nurse educator and as nurse manager for education (all at major teaching hospitals in Sydney). This experience has given Linda an expert understanding of the knowledge and skills required to practise in the nursing profession together with understanding the challenges faced by transitioning new graduate nurses. Linda has also worked in a regulatory environment as a professional officer for the former Nurses and Midwives Board of NSW (2004-2005) where she also acquired her interests in professional issues and nursing and midwifery regulation. Linda is also a current Professional Member for the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

In 2016, Linda completed a professional doctorate in education at the University of Technology, Sydney. Her thesis  'learning with and from others in clinical practice' answered questions about how and what registered nurses learned as they carried out every day work in acute care. Currently, Linda's research interests lie in nurse education, workplace learning, medication administration, clinical handover and more recently with the newly released code of professional conduct for nurses. Linda was also a recipient of an early career researcher grant in late 2018. This grant will will be used to explore nurses’ experiences with the new electronic medication chart at two Sydney based hospitals in 2019. Linda is also an active peer reviewer for several international journals.
