Last night, the QNIS Annual Awards Dinner took place, at the Waldorf Astoria Caledonian Hotel in Edinburgh.
20 modern Queen’s Nurses received their title from nurse and best-selling author Christie Watson, taking the total of contemporary Queen’s Nurses in Scotland to 61.
The Queen’s Nurse programme consists of a week-long residential workshop followed by two further workshops and additional coaching sessions.
The programme requires each nurse to select an issue for development which will have a significant impact on those they care for, so that the learning during the nine months is applied in practice.
Two new Fellows, Ann Gow, Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Nursing, Health Improvement Scotland and Barbara MacFarlane, Parish Nurse, Steeple Church Dundee and an Honorary Fellow, Hilda Campbell, CEO of COPE Scotland also received their awards.
