Inspiring, Leading, Empowering

Rebecca Sherington

As Chair of ARNS, I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to the Association of Respiratory Nurse Specialists (ARNS). After 20 years of inspirational leadership from our previous chairs, which we celebrated at the 2017 20th Anniversary Conference, ARNS is in a strong position, very well connected and respected by our members, partners and key stakeholders in the respiratory world. I was very excited to become Chair of ARNS in May 2017 and to now work with the Executive Committee to transform ARNS to a not for profit organisation, developing a new structure that will empower more members to be actively involved. These are transformational times for ARNS as we consider how we will inspire, lead and empower our members for the next 20 years and beyond. I look forward to sharing details of how you can apply for the new Committee roles very soon.

Are you confused by the latest NICE Asthma Guidelines?

Do you want advice on where NICE Vs BTS/SIGN Asthma guidelines fit in clinical practice?

Do you want to talk about this with other health care professionals who may also be struggling?

Less confused, more concerned for how this will muddy the waters! Will be watching with anticipation!
