Dr Judy Craft is a Senior Lecturer in Physiology and Pathophysiology. She is passionate about facilitating nursing students and registered nurses to improve their understanding about bioscience, and using bioscience as a basis for nursing clinical practice. She publishes journal articles on nursing students’ experiences in bioscience, and innovations to facilitate their bioscience learning. She is particularly focused on the preventative aspects of main diseases in the Australian population, and has developed strong expertise in pathophysiology. She is lead author for a Pathophysiology textbook for nursing students, which is designed for the Australian and New Zealand context.
Judy is an academic who particularly enjoys teaching, and has completed a Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice to consolidate her teaching expertise. She has been awarded Senior Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy, and she actively seeks opportunities to mentor other academics.
Judy’s research is centred on bioscience in nursing, and she collaborates with nurses working in clinical practice, and with nurse academics, both within Australia and internationally. Judy is a member of the NURTURE research cluster.
