RCN Scotland


RCN Scotland campaigns on issues of concern to nurses and patients, influences health policies and promotes excellence in nursing practice on behalf of its members.

Michael Brown

RCN Scotland is proud to be the voice of nursing in Scotland and I would encourage you to get in touch to discuss any aspect of the work of RCN Scotland. We are facing challenging issues to our health services and changes that will affect the future of nursing and RCN members in Scotland. Together, we can continue to face the challenge of getting it right for nurses and the public across Scotland.

Michael Brown Chair, RCN Council and Chair, RCN Scotland Board


All members belong to an RCN branch. Branches work across the NHS, independent and third sectors to deliver services to members and provide opportunities for members to participate in, shape and influence the work of the RCN.
