Congress 2022

Congress 2022 will be taking place in Glasgow from 5-9 June so please save the date, and watch this space for more information.

Congress 2022 is an in-person event. All RCN members are welcome to attend in Glasgow to take part in the debates and learning & wellbeing events and to visit the exhibition.

Congress 2022 will be presided over by BJ Waltho, Chair, and Michael Brown, Vice Chair, whose terms of office, along with those of the Agenda Committee, have been extended by RCN Council in view of the very exceptional circumstances which impacted on Congress in 2020 and 2021.
