Celebrating Nyree’s Queen’s Nurse success

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).

She’s been featured in The Bolton News newspaper (although not on the website, so we can’t link to her story) and she’s been a social media sensation on our Facebook page.  Her story reached 6,350 in one hit and more than 120 people ‘liked’ her story.

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.  Judging by her comments, she inspires much support.
