You can make a real difference by playing an active role in the RCN.
Student information officers (SIOs) are a network of RCN student members who work to support and share information with fellow students.
SIOs keep other student members informed about upcoming student events, help them out with accessing the RCN library and archives and make sure that they are getting full use of all the benefits they are entitled to as RCN members.
As an SIO you get more information and more access to specialist groups. This includes:
To apply to be an SIO you just need to complete the online student information officer application form.
Download the SIO leaflet for further information and contact us with any questions.
Please note that while we aim to process and respond to applications within 3-4 weeks, this is not always possible during particularly busy periods of the year.
