RCN Fellows and Honorary Fellows

RCN Fellowship is the highest honour we can give to our members. 

Fellows are inspirational leaders who have made an exceptional contribution to nursing and improving health care. A distinguished community of professionals, Fellows work with us to influence policy, practice, education and research. In doing so, they are leading and influencing change for the benefit of nursing and ultimately, patients.
