Jordi Sirera, National Clinical Governance Lead at RMBI Care Co., has achieved the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse by The Queen’s Nursing Institute. The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) is a registered charity dedicated to improving the nursing care of people in their own homes and communities.
The title demonstrates 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.
Jordi Sirera says:
Those who know me well would say that I am very passionate about upholding the reputation of nursing in social care. To become a Queen’s Nurse, I had to complete an in-depth application form with various references from Registered Nurses that I support, line managers and residents.
The Queen’s Nurse Institute then reviewed the application and, following a strict selection process, they awarded me the title. These initiatives help me to provide better leadership to the nurses as well as to progress in my career.
Jordi became a Registered Nurse back in 2014 and has extensive experience in social care. At RMBI Care Co., he has worked as Senior Nurse, Deputy Manager and Clinical Lead before becoming the National Clinical Governance Lead. He also has a degree in forensic anatomy and pathology.
Jordi supports Emily Starkey, Clinal Lead at Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh Court, in Berkshire.
To Jordi, the best thing about being a nurse is the satisfaction he gets when residents achieve positive outcomes thanks to his commitment.
It could be something simple, such as having a nice chat with a resident, or something more complex, such as liaising with different teams to ensure residents receive the best nursing care.
Jordi also reflects on the complexity of his duties:
Most of the time, you are on your own. You make your own clinical decisions about the care of residents based on your knowledge, training, skills and the facts presented, and you have to be confident in your actions in order to obtain the best results.
Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, Chief Executive of the QNI, said:
On behalf of the QNI, I would like to congratulate Jordi Sirera and welcome him as a Queen’s Nurse. Queen’s Nurses serve as leaders and role models in community nursing, delivering high quality health care across the country.
The application and assessment process to become a Queen’s Nurse is rigorous and requires clear commitment to improving care for patients, their families and carers.
We look forward to working with Jordi and all other new Queen’s Nurses who have received the title this year.
