Due to COVID-19, the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) did not go ahead with Congress in 2020.
Instead the Agenda Committee selected a number of the debates and events which had already been selected for the 2020 Congress programme and which took place online throughout the rest of the year. Find out more about our #RCN2020 programme of events and debates.
