Nursing lecturer awarded Queen’s Nurse title

  • Comment

A senior lecturer in nursing at the University of Chester has been given the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse.

Irene Cooke, a senior lecturer at the University within the Community and Child Health Team, has been awarded the accolade after a career spanning more than 30 years in nursing. 

Ms Cooke received her award from Dr David Colin-Thome OBE, DH national clinical director for primary care, during an awards ceremony in London this week. 

Ms Cooke said: “It was a great honour for me to receive this award, and it was a special, really well organised event.”

The coveted Queen’s Nurse title is awarded to around 20 nurses each year, making it one of the most prominent and sought-after awards in the nursing profession.  To earn the award, nurses have to demonstrate a high level of commitment to patient-centred values and their keenness to improve practice continually, by providing evidence, not least through references from staff, peers and students.
