Rosemary Cook, whose career has taken her from a Bradford practice nurse to director of the Queen’s Nursing Institute, has received an Honorary Doctorate of Letters for her contribution to community nursing and primary care.
She was the honoured guest at the 2008 Graduation Ceremony of the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.
Ms Cook has close links with the faculty through its degree programmes in Community Nursing and its Academy for Health and Well-being.
Professor Vince Ramprogus, Dean of Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care, said: ‘The ability of nurses to contribute to standards in the health service is now more important than ever. Rosemary Cook and the Queen’s Nursing Institute are making an invaluable contribution to the professionalism, knowledge and ambitions of thousands of nurses in this country.’
