Queen’s Nurse train­ing

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

THREE Fife health staff have been se­lected to take part in a spe­cial pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme that will earn them the right to use the ti­tle of Queen’s Nurses.

The Queen’s Nurs­ing In­sti­tute Scot­land was es­tab­lished by Queen Vic­to­ria in 1889 in hon­our of her Golden Ju­bilee. His­tor­i­cally, the ti­tle was awarded to nurses equipped to work in the com­mu­nity, pro­vid­ing health­care to peo­ple i n their own homes.

Dunfermline-based com­mu­nity der­ma­tol­ogy nurse prac­ti­tioner Pauline Buchanan, Kirk­caldy­based ADHD nurse spe­cial­ist Lyn­d­sey Forsyth and Leven-based com­mu­nity psy­chi­atric nurse Gerry Hastie are three of 21 com­mu­nity-based nurses se­lected by the QNIS to join this year’s de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme.

All can­di­dates were nom­i­nated hav­ing demon­strated their com­mit­ment to high-qual­ity, com­pas­sion­ate care. The nurses will take part in a ninemonth pro­gramme, de­vel­op­ing and hon­ing their skills.
