We promote excellent nursing care for everyone, where and when they need it, provided by nurses and their teams with specific skills and knowledge.

The Queen’s Nursing Institute is a registered charity dedicated to improving the nursing care of people in the home and community.

How do we do it?

  • Through our national network of Queen’s Nurses, who are committed to the highest standards of care
  • Through field-specific standards that support specialist, advanced university qualifications for nurses
  • By funding nurses’ own ideas to improve patient care, helping them develop their skills and innovate services
  • Through our leadership programmes for senior executive nurses, and aspiring leaders in the community
  • By influencing government, policymakers and employers, and campaigning for investment in services
  • By helping working and retired community nurses in times of financial need
  • By linking up working and retired nurses for regular telephone contact.

Watch our short animated film, ‘Today’s Nurses in the Community’, our tribute to the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, narrated by Stephen McGann and showing the vital work of community nurses today.
