We support nurses, employers, educators and policy makers to promote the best in community nursing, for the benefit of patients, carers and families. 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. How do we do it?
Through our national network of Queen’s Nurses, who are committed to the highest standards of care and who lead and inspire others.
By funding nurses’ own ideas to improve patient care, helping them develop their skills through leadership and training programmes.
By publishing research into nursing practice, workforce and education, improving knowledge and standards.
By influencing government, policy makers and employers, and campaigning for investment in high quality community nursing services.
By offering educational grants to enhance nurses’ clinical knowledge.
By helping working and retired community nurses in times of financial need or life crisis.
By linking up working and retired nurses for regular telephone contact.
