Working with us

Corporate partnerships

We value our partnerships with industry and establish mutually beneficial relationships with organisations that align with our strategy and vision. We embrace a collaborative approach to delivering education for nurses and improved outcomes for patients.

Across a variety of nursing specialisms, your organisation can collaborate with the RCN to deliver:

  • a series of UK-wide road shows and participate in a regionally tailored and far-reaching event programme
  • the launch and dissemination of a publication, for example a competency update or guidance document
  • a project led by a particular nursing specialism, containing a variety of educational elements e.g. publications or online resources such as film clips, or workshops, helping to improve the knowledge, skills and practice of nurses
  • a national campaign or educational programme which is far reaching, influential and will result in the delivery of quality patient care.

We were delighted to collaborate with the RCN to develop educational resources on the management of diarrhoea. Throughout the project, the RCN worked to ensure opportunities to engage and communicate with our target audience were maximised.
