Ms Liz McNeill

Associate Lecturer in Nursing or Midwifery

College of Nursing and Health Sciences

place Sturt East (E220)
GPO Box 2100, Adelaide 5001, South Australia

Liz became a midwife after a career in nursing. Her critical care background and subsequent specialisation in simulation has enabled her creative and innovative sides to come out to play with her teaching, curriculum design and scholarship/research areas in both the nursing and midwifery areas.

Liz teaches across the curriculums, including topics in the sciences, clinical skills and research areas. Her focus in simulation is on the integration of a scaffolded approach across the curriculum inclusive of all levels of fidelity and technology, the effectiveness and application of simulation experience as it relates to preparation for clinical placement, and student stress in simulation.

Liz is also very interested in serving/veteran female birthing/post natal experiences, veterans/1st responders living with PTSD and diverse gender, sexes and sexuality inclusivity (GDSS) issues in health care and university students/staff.
