Every month Nursing in Practice celebrates a community or practice nurse deserving of special recognition.
We're looking for nurses who have made significant contributions to the nursing profession's leadership, who demonstrate compassion in practice at work or are just fantastic at what they do.
Nursing in Practice is now looking for submissions for April 2013! The submissions should describe why you think the nurse is deserving.
Entrants are in for the chance to win Public Mental Health, Global Perspectives, a book worth over £20, which could improve your day-to-day practice.
Previous winners of Nurse of the Month include Frazer Underwood, a consultant nurse and associate director of nursing at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust, who believes that knowing the dementia patient, their life story and their goals is key to providing optimal care as it puts their everyday reality into a context.
And Kathy Hill won Nurse of the Month in November. She works night shifts in a nursing home, a role which means she provides a lot of social care as well as administers medications, PEG tube, tracheostomy and palliative care.
