In Conversation with Nursing Pioneers: Do patients need educated nurses?

27 Oct 2021 17:30 - 19:00



Join a panel of nursing experts chaired by Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson to find out why patients need well-educated nurses.

Ever since Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, nurses have blazed a trail in healthcare. They have pioneered improvements in practice, carried out cutting-edge research and advanced education: all with the aim of developing patient care. Yet how many of us know the stories of nursing innovators in more recent times?

The RCN recognises such innovative individuals by awarding Fellowships. The Roll of Honour lists almost 200 RCN Fellows who have made exceptional contributions to advancing the science and practice of nursing and improving health and patient care.

This event, hosted by Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, politician, TV presenter, Paralympian and Chancellor of Northumbria University, is the second in a series highlighting significant contributions to nursing. We will hear from a panel of RCN Fellows – Hilary Chapman, Brendan McCormack and Sonja McIlfatrick - about the past, present and future of nursing education, and why patients need well-educated nurses.

This is a public event and is free and open to all. Please register to attend and a link will be circulated in advance with instructions on how to join the event. All tickets must be booked individually.
