QNIS is saddened to hear of the passing of Miss Anne Jarvie CBE. We were privileged to have her serve as Chair of our Council from 2010-2014. QNIS greatly benefitted from her wisdom, integrity, and expert guidance during this time.
Miss Jarvie had an illustrious career as a nurse leader, making a huge difference to the profession as Chief Nursing Officer for Scotland. In recognition of her work, she was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List in 2000.
At our 2014 Annual Gathering, she was awarded an honorary fellowship in recognition of her four years as our Chair of Council.
She will be deeply missed. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
