Nursing Department team
The RCN Nursing Department is a diverse team made up of advisers, membership co-ordinators and administrative secretaries, who work together to influence, develop and support nursing practice.
Advisers from the Nursing Department spend much of their time working outside of the RCN with statutory, voluntary and independent organisations, the departments of health, medical royal colleges and the pharmaceutical industry. They may be involved in co-ordinating responses to consultations, advising members and others on specialist areas of healthcare and commenting on practice and professional issues. The nature of their work means that advisers have formidable networks and can help colleagues and members to link with other organisations.
The membership co-ordinators are frontline administrators who support, organise and co-ordinate the work of the forum activists. It is the role of the co-ordinator to guide activists through a busy annual schedule of operational planning and agenda setting - working very closely with forum chairs in particular. All forum monies are managed, regulated and monitored by the co-ordinators, ensuring the organisation and its membership receives the best value for money on every penny spent. The co-ordinators know and understand the needs of busy forum members and assist them through governance systems and processes, making committee life easier.
The administrative secretaries provide a comprehensive secretarial support to their advisers such as diary management, producing professional presentation material, project work and assisting in conferences and events. They also help support some of the membership activities with the membership co-ordinators and act as an effective communication link between advisers and staff members, stakeholders and RCN members.
