The Queen’s Nurse Programme looks for change makers, those community nurses and midwives making a real difference to people’s health and wellbeing. We want to hear from those who are passionate about social justice, and looking to amplify the nursing voice in addressing the social determinants of health. The Queen’s Nurse title is awarded each year to around 20 nursing and midwifery pioneers who complete a nine-month ‘journey of discovery’.
When applications are open we invite nominations from NHS Boards, third and independent sector employers. Each candidate must be nominated by their Executive Nurse Director (or equivalent) before submitting and application form.
We recognise that this process might feel a bit daunting, so a number of previous candidates have agreed to share their applications to help and inspire you, they can be found below:
Whilst names have been removed, we have not been able to fully disguise the identities of those who wrote them. Please treat the information with sensitivity.
If you’d like to know more about the programme and the difference it has made, the current candidates and those who are already Queen’s Nurses have said they are happy to be contacted. You can find their email addresses here.
