Community matrons are an important part of the policy of community-based management of long-term conditions. In contrast to some early conceptions of the role, community matrons can come from all areas of nursing. This article draws together two personal accounts by nurses from one primary care trust who have made the transition from acute care to community matron, and highlights the learning process they and their colleagues have undergone.
