The Library and Heritage Centre is open to RCN members and the public almost every Saturday of the year. Here’s a first-person account of what it is like to work there.
In Autumn 2017, the RCN Library and Heritage Centre will host an exhibition and event series – ‘Hidden in Plain Sight’ – focusing on diversity in nursing.
Two of our Service Scrapbook volunteers, Sue and Jayne, describe their visit to the IWM and St Johns.
Lesley, a volunteer with the RCN’s World War One Service Scrapbook project, describes a recent trip to the Lothian Health Services Archive.
We recently hosted a visit from nurses studying to re-register with the NMC and demonstrated the benefits of re-joining the RCN.
One hundred years ago, Britain was at war. As the number of casualties quickly grew, the need for nurses had never been so high.
The Library and Archive Service is passionate about giving our members the best possible service and now we can prove that is exactly what we do.
We rely on input from our customers to improve our offer and the annual survey is one way you can influence our service.
The RCN Library and Archive are collecting stories on nursing as a diverse workforce caring for diverse populations, looking particularly at lesbian nurses.
Kate, one of our new volunteers, explains how she is helping us to digitise 10 nurse's scrapbooks from WWI. Each book is filled with experiences from the front line.
