A former Lynn college student is set to take up a senior role at the town's new School of Nursing.
And officials have today announced the appointment of Adrian Debney as the school's Senior Nurse Educator.
Mr Debney is currently a Senior Practice Development Nurse at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, which is running the project in partnership with the college. He is expected to take up the role next month.
College principal David Pomfret said: “We are delighted with the appointment of CWA alumnus Adrian Debney as Senior Nurse Educator.
"Adrian will bring his knowledge, experience and commitment to this new role, enabling our students and the future QEH workforce to have the tools they need to succeed in their nursing careers.”
