University honours contribution of two leading nurses

  • Comment

Two leading names in nursing and midwifery have been awarded honorary doctorates by Bournemouth University.

Former chief nursing officer for England and former Department of Health director of nursing Dame Yvonne Moores became a doctor of education during the ceremony on 5 November.

Dame Yvonne has acted as a key adviser to governments on policy and quality issues. She has also been an important figure at Bournemouth University, as its pro-chancellor from 2006 to 2013.

Former nurse and midwife Muriel Chalkley was also recognised with a doctor of education award at a separate graduation ceremony on 4 November.

Ms Chalkley headed a large maternity unit in Derby before spending over 30 years as a missionary nurse in Kenya, where she pioneered nursing and midwifery services and trained local women and midwives – leading to a dramatic reduction in maternal and infant mortality rates.
