Professor Ruth Harris has joined the Florence Nightingale faculty of nursing and midwifery at King’s College London.

Professor Harris joined King’s this week from the joint faculty of health, social care and education based at Kingston University and St George’s Medical School.

“I’m keen to contribute to the planning and delivery of education to inspire the next generations of nurses”

She has a clinical background in acute medical nursing and care of older people.

Her current research interests include the impact of nursing and multi-professional interventions on processes of care and patient outcomes.

Her previous studies have investigated the development and evaluation of new nursing roles and inter-professional team working.

Professor Harris, who did her BSc, MSc and PhD degrees at King’s, said she was “delighted” to be returning.

“I am very excited about the opportunities to work alongside students, university colleagues and NHS colleagues to develop programmes of internationally significant research within care of older people and acute care,” she said.

She added: “I’m keen to contribute to the planning and delivery of education to inspire the next generations of nurses, at undergraduate and postgraduate level, to value, use and generate research evidence in their practice.”

Professor Ian Norman, the faculty’s executive dean, said Professor Harris had an “established international reputation for excellent research”, as well as being an experienced teacher at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

“She brings a wealth of academic, leadership and clinical experience and we are extremely pleased that she has joined us,” he said.
