Our work is wide ranging but falls into three broad categories.
Advise, support and represent
We support our members through issues they experience at work, both individually and collectively.
RCN staff and actvists offer expert advice and support to represent our members' interests in employment, legal and professional matters.
We support our members by influencing decision-makers such as employers, local councillors and MPs on issues relating to health.
We also create opportunities and support members to engage in campaigning and influencing work.
Every year we and our branches hold a range of learning events for registered nurses and nursing support workers from all sectors.
We also develop our representatives with a comprehensive training and mentoring programme and host regular learning and development events for them.
Being a rep can be one of the most fulfilling activities you can undertake. Fully supported by the RCN at every turn, we will equip you with the skills and knowledge to represent your colleagues and your region.
