We have been working on something very special for a very special lady.
Introducing ‘Teresa Chinn’,
The innovation and dedication from nurses to ensure patients receive the best quality care is recognised regularly in the Queen's Honours list.
Only extra special nurses receive this honor and one of these exceptional people is Teresa who has achieved this recognition by setting up WeNurses, as well as subsequent other health care professional communities. The Queen's honour is an additional reward for Teresa, helping to cement the growing value of being a connected tweeting nurse.
There is much work to do, and Teresa continues to lead by example, innovate and drive the use of open space learning, through Twitter and other social media channels, enabling her and others to support her desire as a nurse to ensure all patients receive the best quality care they can and health care professions have access to the support they need to deliver the care.
Teresa will be presented with a much deserved MBE by The Queen on May 19th 2015.
When a special request arrived at IC HQ from the people who have worked alongside Teresa for the past few years, witnessing and experiencing the kindness and dedication she puts in daily, we couldn’t possibly turn it down.
Teresa is a big Irregular Choice fan, and we have made her a unique pair of IC shoes to wear to mark this auspicious occasion.
Lets hope the Queen loves them too, maybe we can make her some of her very own for her next Birthday!
