Chair of ARNS
"It is a great privilege and an honour to be the Chair of the Association of Respiratory Nurse Specialists.
ARNS seeks to be the voice of our members and I have been lucky enough to be a committee member for 8 years and proud to take over from Wendy Preston and continue the work she has started taking us to the next stages of being a Not for Profit Organisation.
Following the footsteps of past Chairs of ARNS is an exciting one and it has always been led by passionate and driven nurses whose aim to improve the care of patient with respiratory disease with supporting our members at the forefront of our plans.
We work in collaboration with our members and partners to Inspire, Lead and Empower our membership and influence the direction of respiratory nursing care.
I will continue the work delivered by our previous Chairs by developing and enhancing the structure to empower more members to become actively involved in ARNS workstreams and I look forward to leading this fantastic organisation for my tenure as Chair."
ARNS are honoured to be supporting the Nursing Times Respiratory Nursing award. Katy Beckford, Chair of ARNS, announced that Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have won the 2020 Nursing Times Respiratory Nursing award with their Yellow Lanyard project. Read more here.
