As the Royal College of Nursing prepares to celebrate their 100th Birthday, they have launched a photography competition in collaboration with the Royal Photographic Society with the aim to show a record of nursing over 100 years.
Two photographs have been submitted for the competition by our Northern Ireland team which can be seen above.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director NI, explains “The first image in the garden was decided on after discussing the difficulties with nurse recruitment. We decided to take a novel approach by supporting the Home Managers and Practice Support Manager to ‘grow their own’ nurses".
“The second image is all about ‘It was not like that in our day’. Growing up our mums talked fondly of nursing and always told us “it wasn’t like that in our day”. Wanting to prove them wrong we decided to follow in their footsteps and now we have a combined total of 122 years’ service to the nursing profession".
"We have to explain new world of nursing – Gary, Infection Control and Clinical Development Nurse, shows his mum modern clinical technology. Rebecca, who is about to commence Adult Nursing with the University of Brighton, demonstrates the ways fob watches have moved with the times and can still be fashionable. Meanwhile Leah models for her mum that nurses can wear trousers”.
The competition is open to RCN members and the public. The collection will be added to the RCN archive with 50 images shortlisted to form an exhibition which will be loaned to various places across the UK.
Entries so far can be seen here.
The competition will close for entries 29th February.

Woodside Care Home, managed by Lorraine Dray and her team had to safely evacuate 25 Residents at very short notice. The Four Seasons Family all pitched in to help across the region including 2 Brighterkind homes, resulting in all 25 residents safely being transferred to other homes by the end of the evening.
The Local Authority and the Police have both commented today on how impressed they were with all the team involved for their outstanding performance in the face of unprecedented severe weather. During this time the team on duty, off duty and members of the public were all helping to try and collect and prepare sandbags, and then trying to get these back to the home through Aberdeen City which itself had ground to a halt due to severe flooding. The team did an amazing job and as a result there has been no damage to the home overnight.
The Meadows Care Home, managed by Cassie Hersee and her team had an equally stressful past 24 hours. Having been put on High Alert early on Thursday the team were busy preparing the 41 residents for the potential full evacuation of the home. At the same time, the team off duty were busy helping the home by collecting sand bags from local collection points and transporting these back to the home. As afternoon turned to early evening the decision finally came from the Police that they needed to evacuate the home. By far the biggest challenge facing the team was where the residents would go to as the town of Huntly was completely closed off due to all roads in and out being blocked and unpassable due to flooding. The local hospital had no room and due to the evacuation earlier of a sheltered housing complex there was no room at the local hall.
Eventually there was space found at a community centre for 15 residents. The remaining residents were moved into a unit at the care home that was less likely to flood. Later that night the Police and the care home team agreed that the residents who had moved to the community centre may be better returning to the home as the risk of flooding was beginning to recede. So with everyone back again, for the rest of the night the full 41 residents shared a single unit but were well looked after by the whole team.
John Kirk, Managing Director (Scotland), told us “I want to say a massive thank you to Sylvia Nicoll, Regional Manager and everyone who assisted with this across Team Grampian yesterday and today. Team members who were on days off, the public, the support team and to the other members of Team Scotland who all offered their support with any potential clean up. A fantastic show of teamwork, care and compassion to our residents and I am extremely grateful to have them as part of my team”.
