Karen Hercher, a Highland Campus graduate, was presented with the R G Bomont Award for Excellence in Clinical Practice on 18 December 2009. Family, friends, teaching staff and NHS Highland staff gathered to celebrate her achievement.
Karen joined the nursing profession mid-career. She took an HNC at Inverness College and joined the University of Stirling's nursing course in the second year. She had worked in the NHS prior to that and was encouraged and supported by her colleagues to make the move to qualified nurse.
After her graduation this autumn, Karen has joined the Diagnostics team at NHS Highland and we wish her the very best of luck in her career.
