Director of nursing appointed honorary professor

  • 1 Comment

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde director of nursing Rosslyn Crocket has been appointed an honorary professor at Glasgow Caledonian University.

The university said Ms Crocket offered an “unrivalled insight” into the profession after a very varied career in nursing.

Ms Crocket trained as a nurse at the Victoria Infirmary in Glasgow, after which she qualified as a district nurse. She then moved to Ayrshire and Arran to study as a midwife before returning to Glasgow as a district nurse for a short time and went on to train as a health visitor.

After a number of nurse management roles across Ayrshire and Glasgow, she became nursing director at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde in 2010.

She said: “NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has a long association with GCU and I am looking forward to further cementing that relationship by contributing to the universities excellent opportunities for nurses and allied professionals.”

Veronica James, pro vice chancellor and executive dean of health and life sciences, said: “I am thrilled that Rosslyn will be bringing her wealth of clinical and organizational experience to share with our undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral students and researchers.

“We know that Rosslyn shares our commitment to working with users and carers and this appointment ensures that we can further grow our exciting clinical academic career opportunities for nurses and allied health professionals.”
