Teaching Lecturer at The Faculty of Health Sciences


I have worked as a lecturer at Faculty of Health Sciences since 2010 and have primarily been responsible for courses in Bachelor of Science in Nursing (240ECTS).

Main teaching subjects are:

  • Nursing science and theories
  • Gerontology and geriatric nursing
  • Health promotion and disease prevention
  • Rehabilitation
  • Reflective practice in nursing
  • Caring science 
  • Quality assurance and quality improvement in nursing practice
  • Literature searching in health science databases

In addition to teaching, I'm also supervising bachelor projects and other examination papers. 

When nursing studens are in clinical learning periods (90ECTS in total), I'm a contact teacher for both students and clinical supervisors.

Research interests

Since July 2021 I have been part of a research group conducting a research project called ‘Medication use and health status among elderly (90+) Faroese citizens’ which is led by Associate professor and Faculty Research Leader at Faculty of Health Sciences, Maria Skaalum Petersen. The project consists of both quantitative and qualitative research studies, where I am responsible for the quantitative study. I have completed the data collection from a total of 267 participants and I am currently in the process of writing the first research article from the project.
