Applications are now open for The Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Award for Outstanding Service, awarded by the Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI).

A previous winner of this award is one of our Fellows – Ruth Oshikanlu.

The award is given through nomination, to community nurses who provide exceptional care to their patients and demonstrate a continuing passion and enthusiasm for nursing.

This award is not a reward for length of service, but an acknowledgement that a nurse makes a very exceptional individual contribution to patient care and the nursing profession. Criteria include:

  • A minimum of 10 years’ service in community nursing
  • Ability to demonstrate a continuing commitment to the principles of excellent nursing care to the benefit of patients
  • Ability to demonstrate an outstanding contribution to both patients and the profession over and above the normal call of duty.
