The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) is dedicated to improving the care of people both at home and in the community, which it achieves through its national network of Queen’s Nurses. We spoke to one of our Associates, Julie Lennon, who teaches on our Asthma and COPD courses to find out what being a Queen’s Nurse means to her.
What inspired you to become a Queen’s Nurse?
My inspiration to become a Queen’s Nurse was my absolute connection to their values. It is so much more than promoting high standards; being a Queen’s Nurse encourages me to practice values such as compassion, reflection, leadership, well-being and dedication to healthcare and nursing.
What does being a Queen’s Nurse entail and what does it mean to you?
Being a Queen’s Nurse is not about a title; it says who you are as a person and what matters to you. We are a community with a shared passion for equality helping to promote resilience. This is important for patient care, also for relationships with colleagues and the students I support through their journey of professional development.
How does training and education benefit healthcare, and why is it so crucial right now?
As an educator I support the workforce of the future; I see their compassion and dedication to improving standards and representing their profession by challenging inequalities.

This is important for patient care, also for relationships with colleagues and the students I support through their journey of professional development. As an Associate for Education for Health I want to lead innovation and best practice; coaching the students through their learning journey so their potential is realised, translating into high quality patient care.
How will you be celebrating the Jubilee?
I will be celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by reflecting on working in the NHS for over 40 years and how much has changed. I will be contemplating on the future needs of the workforce – ability to challenge inequalities for example. I will be confident in knowing that when I will need to access healthcare, I will benefit from the investment provided by education providers.
