Queen's Nurses

The Queen's Nurse programme is designed for community nurses who want to develop their professional skills and promote the highest standards of patient care. 

If you are committed to our values and want to join other nurses with the same values, the Queen's Nurse title is for you. Find out more about becoming a Queen's Nurse.

The Queen's Nurse title gives special recognition of your commitment to your profession and it will:

  • Connect you with a supportive network
  • Link you in to regional meetings close to you
  • Provide formal recognition of your commitment to improving care
  • Provide access to our free developmental programme, bursaries and networking
  • Entitle you to receive your Queen's Nurse certificate and badge at our annual Awards Ceremony 
  • Entitle you to attend the Queen's Nurse annual meeting

What our Queen's Nurses say:

'This year our service is being redesigned and we are consequently having to apply for new roles within the organisation. Having the title of QN has helped boost my confidence and added weight to my application.'

‘’I feel that being a Queen's Nurse is a privilege and an achievement which I am very proud of and the publicity appears to have raised our profile and further funding has been provided to increase the team by two nurses starting in February and the possibility of two more nurses by December and a further two in 2016.’’
‘’ I feel that holding the QN title has made me more confident, it was something I applied for myself as I feel that there are far more times in the work situation that only negatives are recognised.’’
‘’ Networking with other QN's at the conference in Manchester last year; looking forward to meeting up at regional meetings this year.’
