'The nursing profession is going through tough times. I'm determined to be a vocal campaigner on behalf of the RCN members and will work tirelessly to secure a better future for nursing staff and their patients," she added.

She will take over from outgoing president, Andrea Spyropoulos, on the 1 January 2015, for the next two years.
