Georgios Tsigkas is a Lecturer in the Nursing Division.

I was born in the capital of Greece, Athens, where I graduated as a Registered General Nurse. I moved to Cardiff in 2014 and completed my Master’s Degree in Advanced Practice with selected pathway in Education for Health Professionals.

My clinical experience is in acute medical admission wards and emergency departments across Greece and the United Kingdom. I still work at NHS Lothian as a bank staff nurse trying to keep contact with clinical areas.

My teaching role at QMU is mainly on Skills and Practice modules over the years 1-3.
