Katie Webb RN (adult), PG Cert in Learning & Teaching, Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Diploma in Nursing Studies

Associate Facilitator

Katie has worked in healthcare for 30 years. During a clinical career spanning 22 years, she specialised in day and short stay surgical nursing, women’s health and theatre recovery.

Her love of teaching, and supporting the development of others, saw her move into professional and practice development in 2016. She supported pre-registration healthcare learners, healthcare professionals returning to practice and led the preceptorship programme for newly registered health care professionals and internationally educated nurses working in the UK for the first time. In her next role as Learning Environment Lead for an acute NHS Trust, she was responsible for the student experience, assuring quality learning environments and supporting the growth of the trust’s trainee nursing associates and registered degree nursing apprentices.

Building on this work, in 2022, Katie started an 18 month RePAIR Programme Fellowship with NHS England South East, Workforce, Training and Education Directorate, with a focus on reducing avoidable attrition from healthcare degrees and increasing retention of early careers healthcare professionals. She combined her fellowship with a role within the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care Board. In this capacity, she led the development of a multi-professional student council, supported NHS organisations to hear from learners and promoted opportunities for organisations to collaborate and share good practice to enhance learning environments and the student experience.

In April 2024, Katie started a one-year secondment as RePAIR Fellow at the University of Surrey to continue to take forward the RePAIR agenda.

Katie is passionate about enabling healthcare students and professionals to access high quality clinical supervision to support their wellbeing, learning and safe patient care. She is delighted to be working with the Foundation of Nursing Studies as an Associate Facilitator on the Resilience-based Clinical Supervision Programme.
