The Queen's Nursing Institute (QNI) is seeking to appoint a Trustee from a community nursing background as part of its governing Council. The Institute was founded in 1887 and is one of the oldest nursing organisations in the world. Today the QNI undertakes policy work, campaigning and supporting community nurses to deliver the best possible care in people's homes.
The Institute has a number of strands of important work including our Homeless Health project, Queen's Nurse and Executive Leadership programmes, innovation awards, an important grant and support function and a large network of Queen's Nurses across England, Wales, the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Northern Ireland.
The successful applicant will be joining the Institute at an exciting time in its history as it embarks on new programmes to empower and strengthen the voice of community nurses and extend its policy work through better workforce intelligence.
The Institute is a registered charity, established under Royal Charter and our Council of Trustees takes responsibility for ensuring that the organisation meets its charitable objects.
This is an unpaid role which will require attendance at 4 Council meetings a year, strategy away days and award and other ceremonies. Reasonable travel expenses are reimbursed.
Applications from Queen's Nurses are particularly welcome, as are those applications from individuals wholly engaged in the provision or management of clinical services. However, applications from suitably qualified individuals in any role are also welcomed.
