School of Health lecturer to retire after 30 years at UN

Date 16.11.2015

Sue Cluroe, a Senior Lecturer in the School of Health, is to retire this week after 30 years with the University.

Over the past three decades Sue has worked in various teams in the School of Health, including the nursing and foundation degree teams. For twenty of those years she had an active role in admissions. Before joining the institution her background was as a children’s nurse.

Sue commented: “I transferred into what was then Nene College in 1994 from the Sir Gordon Roberts School of Nursing and Midwifery as Senior Lecturer in Children’s Nursing.”

“Over the past 30 years, my highlights have been the development of various courses involving the care of children and the higher profile these now have, and the work with stake holders to ensure these are fit for purpose.”

Sue added: “I’ll miss the camaraderie of my colleagues, particularly in the Foundation Degree. Even at the busiest of times, they have a joke and have time for each other. My students have been tremendous and always give a reason to get up in the morning and go into class.”

Jane Campion, Sue’s line manager, commented: “Staff and students will greatly miss Sue’s dedication, knowledge and wisdom.”

Sue plans on taking it a little easier once she retires. “My retirement is going to be spent on my hobbies – crafting – and charity work. After 46 years of continuous work, however, I am not going to miss having to get up in the morning and rush in to campus!,” she exclaimed.
