The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) and the National Garden Scheme (NGS) have announced the creation of a new scholarship programme for community nurses, the NGS Elsie Wagg Scholarship. The new programme will support five community nurses each year to undertake projects to improve the health and wellbeing of their own community through gardens and gardening initiatives.

The new scholarship was launched at the Queen’s Nurse Annual Meeting on 12th May by the chief executive of the National Garden Scheme, George Plumptre, who said, ‘Elsie Wagg’s name has always been the historic binding of the National Garden Scheme and our founder, the Queen’s Nursing Institute. The scholarship will be a vehicle through which we will together provide tangible evidence of the health benefits of gardens in a series of new projects and I am full of expectation at the exciting projects that I know community nurses are going to come up with.’
