Making history

Making history

The RCN President, Professor Anne Marie Rafferty is leading a contemporary collecting project, to ensure the milestones of the RCN’s Staffing for Safe and Effective Care Campaign (SSEC) are brought together in the RCN Archive. Part of this involves capturing the members’ voice.

Applications to take part in this project are now closed.

About the project

As an oral history volunteer working with the RCN Archive team, you will receive training in conducting and recording oral history interviews, and ongoing support from the team. 

We are looking for interviewers from around the UK. You will need to be able to travel to Edinburgh for a training session, and then travel to meet and interview people in a location of their choosing (expenses will be covered). 

There will also be opportunities to get involved with your region or country and to be more involved with the History of Nursing Forum. Find out more at the training session.

The training session will take place on 16 - 17 March 2020, at 42 South Oswald Road, Edinburgh EH9 2HH.
