Adam Nash: lecturer to the stars
We’re big fans of BBC Three’s Junior Paramedics, which follows a group of trainee paramedics as they complete their first placements with East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS). The show has featured our Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) before – but has even closer ties to our clinical team.
One of our critical care paramedics, Adam Nash, is a lecturer to the future paramedic star students on the programme. He has been a lecturer at The University of Northampton for several years now, and teaches on modules ranging from Foundation Degree to Master’s Degree level.
Adam enjoyed the show, and is proud of his students. He said: “I thought that both the students and EMAS Paramedic Mentors that featured on the programme came across extremely well.”
“The series also highlighted some of the pressures that faces ambulance personnel in the pre-hospital environment, and showed the steep learning curve and hard work that is required to be successful on the course.”
Adam has been teaching since he was a student, working in fitness instruction and coaching sport while he studied. Before he started work as a critical care paramedic for us full time, he worked as a clinical practice tutor for EMAS NHS Trust – before that, he was an instructor at the National Lifeguard Training Centre in Cornwall.
