A Ribble Valley practice nurse has won a prestigious accolade.
Stephanie Zakrzweski, who is practice nurse at Sabden and Whalley Medical Group, has been awarded the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse (QN) by community nursing charity The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI).
The title is not an award for past service, but indicates a commitment to high standards of patient care, learning and leadership.
Nurses who hold the title benefit from developmental workshops, bursaries, networking opportunities, and a shared professional identity.
Dr Crystal Oldman, chief executive of the QNI, said: “Congratulations are due to Stephanie for her success.
“Community nurses are expert professionals who make a vital contribution to patient health and wellbeing every day.
“As a national charity the QNI can share innovation and best practice, supporting nurses to deliver excellent health care to patients in local communities.”
