Project information

Dementia Nurse Specialist

A Dementia Nurse is a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) - a registered nurse who through study and supervised practice at graduate level has become an expert in a selected area of nursing. Alzheimer Scotland supports the Dementia Nurse for the first three years from fundraised income on the basis of an agreement with the local health authority that the NHS will subsequently take over the funding.

Alzheimer Scotland’s vision is to have a specialist Dementia Nurse in every acute hospital in Scotland.
