    31st October 1975. The day I started my training. Read a little more about some of the changes that I have seen over the last 40 years at http://nursingtimes.net .

     

    In my fourth decade I became a FNF scholar and I have started a Professional Doctorate (5th decade). Never to old to learn. Never lost the passion for  nursing.

    The Foundation of Nursing Studies, in conjunction with the International Community of Practice for Person-centredness, is delighted to publish this special issue of the International Practice Development Journal on person-centredness.

    The papers in this timely issue explore a range of perspectives on person-centredness and represent an important contribution to the discussion from world renowned academics. Professor Gaby Jacobs of Fontys University of Applied Science, The Netherlands says ‘each paper contributes a small piece to this puzzle of establishing and legitimising person-centred practice as an approach to creating high-quality and cost-effective care’.

    I never fail to be moved by the memorial service at Westminster Abbey. Yesterday was extra-special as I shared the experience with my husband.

    For me it’s an annual renewal of the essence of nursing, a reason to stay proud of nursing and a reminder that there is always so much more to learn.

     

    The scholarship was a step in my learning, the Abbey a prompt. So today I filed the application form for my PhD. Not sure what it looks like yet. I just know I have so much more learning and sharing to do
