Our Senior Lecturer and lead for the District Nursing Specialist Practice Programme, Nyree Kendall, has been given the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse (QN) by community nursing charity The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI).
The title is not an award for past service, but indicates a commitment to high standards of patient care, learning and leadership. Nurses who hold the title benefit from developmental workshops, bursaries, networking opportunities, and a shared professional identity.
Said Nyree: ‘I was nominated for this award by two of my District Nursing Specialist Practitioner nurses and by my head of School, Jane Howarth. To be selected as a Queen’s Nurse is a huge honour and recognition of my commitment to patient care.
Dr Crystal Oldman, Chief Executive of the QNI said: ‘Congratulations are due to Nyree for her success. Community nurses are expert professionals who make a vital contribution to patient health and wellbeing every day. As a national charity the QNI can support them in delivering excellent patient care in their local communities. The Queen’s Nurse title is a key part of this and we would encourage other community nurses to apply.’
