The inaugural awards this year saw 20 Nurses from a variety of settings including prisons and rural mental health awarded the title ‘Queen’s Nurse’. We are delighted to say that the care home sector was represented by Bupa, and Kate McConville has been awarded the title. This is hugely prestigious and a testament to Kate’s commitment to both care home nursing and her own professional development.
Kate took the time to tell us about her award. ‘Completing the Queens nurse program has given me greater resilience, and permission to be bolder. It has enhanced my skills to lead change and shift cultures. Receiving this award has been an honour and I am very proud to be flying the flag for care homes in Scotland. I would encourage all clinical leaders to take part in the program if they get the opportunity’.
