Student Information Officers (SIOs) are a network of RCN student members who work closely with the RCN to support and share information with their fellow students.
RCN West Midlands regards the SIO role as vital in ensuring the voice of nursing students across the region is heard by the RCN, employers and nurse education institutions.

Taking part in the programme is a great opportunity to access continuing professional development and network with peers, share ideas and learn from other nursing professionals and students.
The programme brochure is accompanied by a learning log in which you can summarise the work you do as an SIO at university or on placement. There is space for the learning to be signed off and dated when completed.
To find out more and to request a place on the programme please email Maria Lewis in the RCN West Midlands regional office.
