UKAHN is delighted and proud to announce that, Professor Claire Chatterton, one of its founder members and current member of the Committee has been made a fellow of the Royal College of Nursing. We would like to congratulate Claire on this well-deserved recognition of her achievements in, and contributions to, nursing, which span practice, research, education and history. As a nurse historian, Claire’s research publications illuminate in particular mental health nursing in the 20th century and World War One nursing, as well as including a number of fascinating biographies. Claire takes every opportunity to promote nursing history, as a UKAHN member for all its 20+ years, and as a key committee member since 2015, through the development of a seminar series hosted at the University of Chester, and importantly through her national and international links. Claire hosted an excellent Colloquium at Chester in 2018 and, but for postponement [until 2021] due to Covid 19, would have hosted again in Chichester this year.
Well done Claire: We hope the opportunities afforded by the Fellowship enables you to develop, enhance and enjoy your scholarship.
