Nina celebrates Honorary Professor appointment

University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust’s Chief Nursing Officer Nina Morgan has become Coventry University’s latest Honorary Professor.

 

Professor Morgan, who has worked for more than 25 years in the NHS, has been recognised for her support of strong partnership working and local and national leadership in the field of Nursing.

 

The appointment further strengthens the collaboration between UHCW and Coventry University.

 

Prof Morgan said: “I am delighted and honoured to have been asked to become an Honorary Professor by Coventry University.

 

“UHCW’s relationship with the university is very important to me and hopefully my position as an honorary professor will help to further our joint aims of excellence in Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Profession practice, as well as further promoting a research culture and supporting new and innovative approaches to clinical academic careers.

 

“I’ve been lucky enough to experience the most tremendous career and I want to see others enjoy the same. Healthcare students have access to the best training and education at Coventry University. The strong relationship between both organisations that we enjoy will further ensure that patients, service users and the local population will benefit immeasurably.”

 

Prof Morgan was informed of the news during the official launch of the Centre of Care Excellence for Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions (NMAHP).

 

A pioneering partnership between UHCW and Coventry University, led by four jointly appointed professors, the Centre will further enhance patient care and academic excellence through research, practice development, education and innovation.

 

Prof John Latham CBE, Vice Chancellor at Coventry University, said: "Nina provides exceptional leadership, which is acclaimed nationally, to promote careers in healthcare and to support research and ground-breaking approaches to training and development.

 

"These efforts are designed to ensure the attraction of talent, development and retention within the healthcare profession. The recent establishment of the Centre for Care Excellence is a testament to Nina’s expertise of developing and embedding a culture of innovation in patient care.

 

“We believe that her honorary professorship will contribute significantly to the work of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences and to the university as a whole.”
