Roxanne Crosby-Nwaobi awarded RCN Fellowship

Congratulations to Dr Roxanne Crosby-Nwaobi, lead nurse for research, who has been awarded a Fellowship by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN). 

The RCN Fellowship recognises innovative individuals who have made an exceptional commitment to advancing the science and practice of nursing and the improvement of health and patient care. It is the highest honour given to an RCN member. 

The best of nursing.

RCN President Sheilabye Sobrany presented the prestigious awards on Sunday 2 June. At the ceremony, held in Wales, she said: "Congratulations to all the award winners tonight. You truly represent the best of nursing."

Speaking about receiving this honour, Roxanne said: “I am deeply humbled and honoured to receive this award for my contribution to ophthalmic nursing, population eye health and research. For more than 80% of people, sight is considered their most important sense. Ophthalmic nurses provide holistic nursing care to aid in the prevention, treatment and long-term management of eye conditions; an essential service within the most trusted profession.”

The RCN Fellowship is one of 11 awards Roxanne has received for her work in the past 12 months, including RCN Researcher of the Year, Nursing Times Digital Technology award, and Moorfields chair award for outstanding contribution to the trust.

Congratulations to Roxanne!
