On the 9th July 2010, Education for Health held the graduation of another 25 healthcare professionals at a ceremony, which took place at St Mary’s Church, Warwick.
Chief executive at Education for Health, Monica Fletcher, commented:
“Many nursing roles are demanding, require an advanced level of practice and clinical knowledge and are key to supporting the QIPP agenda. The shift of nursing towards an all graduate profession gives due credit to this and the important role that nurses have inpreventing disease and disease progression through the highest quality care. Degree level education provides nurses with the decision making skills that they need to make high-level judgements in the changing NHS”
Jackie Walker from Cambridge, Karen Orr from Belfast and Jane McCarthy from Herefordshire, were just three of the graduates to receive awards this year.
Jane said: “I feel much more confident in practice now and have the ability to speak to patients about clinical issues with much more certainty”.
Dr Samantha Walker, director of education and research at Education for Health said:
“We’re very proud of our graduates who all leave us as committed, knowledgeable healthcare providers, able to stand by their clinical opinions and make a real difference to patient care. It’s rewarding to know that as the number of healthcare professionals graduating with us continues to rise, even more patients will benefit as these healthcare professionals harness new innovations and ideas to ensure that they deliver the highest quality care.”
