Today was a significant day in the history of QNIS. After 13 long years, and 37 successful candidates, the Fellowship Award programme has been brought to a close with our final recipient.
The Programme gave nurses the opportunity to develop their research and practice skills and we are proud to have helped all 37 Fellows through the process. We are proud of each of our Fellows, for the hard work they put in during the programme and ever since. We are committed to valuing our existing Fellows, and developing their ongoing role with the Institute.
Our latest and final Fellow is Diane Ratcliffe, a Community Staff Nurse from NHS Lothian. She is pleased to become the final member of an exclusive group and said she felt such a sense of achievement and reward having compiled the required portfolio.
