RCN South West Region


The RCN Somerset branch represents more than 4,500 nurse and health care assistant members across the county. We hold regular events for members to have their voice heard, network and engage in professional development opportunities. All RCN members are invited to attend your local branch meetings to find out what's going on in your area and feed into discussions. 

We have recently held a successful meeting which addressed the topics of revalidation and reflection. 

To celebrate the RCN's centenary, we are planning a hundredth birthday tea party on 13 July. Cream teas and ice cream will be served from a vintage caravan from 2:00 - 4:00 pm and we hope to have a selection of nursing memorabilia on display. For more information and to book, see Somerset branch centenary tea party.

Our subsequent meeting will be on 26 September and our annual general meeting will be on 8 November
