A group of practice nurses with more than 120 years of service working in the community have been recognised for their dedication.
The five nurses were presented with their QNIS long service award during the Scottish Practice Nurses Association (SPNA) annual conference in Dunblane.
The Institute gives awards to those who have served 21 years working in any nursing role in the community including, but not limited, to care home and community hospital nursing, community mental health nursing, midwifery, health visiting, school nursing, practice nursing, criminal justice nursing, occupational health nursing, district nursing, community children’s nursing and learning disabilities.
Between them, Helen Dickson, Marie Duffy, Heather Jane Muirhead, Jane Schmidt and Suzanne Spalding, have 122 years of service.
Clare Cable, Chief Executive and Nurse Director of QNIS, presented the award which includes a badge and certificate, to the five nurses (pictured).
