This year, why not enjoy a day out at a National Gardens Scheme garden - you'll be helping fund the QNI too!
Providing vital funding for projects that help improve patient care.
Visit our nursing heritage website, a celebration of District Nursing around the world since 1859.
The Queen’s Nursing Institute is a registered charity dedicated to improving the nursing care of people in their own homes.
We trained district nurses until the 1960s, in a model that was copied across the world. This model of care was instrumental in developing a comprehensive, highly-skilled service in the UK that meets the needs of millions of people every year.
We want excellent nursing care in the home for everyone who needs it there, provided by nurses and their teams who have specific skills and knowledge.
We see a future where more people are treated at home, rather than in hospital, technology is exploited to the full, and the relationship between nurse and patient is central to quality healthcare.
