Library Europe's largest nursing-specific collection

About us

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Members can now book to visit the London library including our current exhibition - Who Cares? A History of Emotions in Nursing (viewing time approx. 20-30 mins).

Spaces must be booked at least 24 hours before visiting and up to 7 days in advance. If you no longer need a booking please cancel it so another member can use it. Visit our keeping up to date page for the latest information.

We recommend checking the library opening hours before you travel, as these may change at short notice. Visit our keeping up to date page for the latest information.

The Edinburgh and Belfast libraries are still closed following government guidance to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

The RCN Wales library in Cardiff aims to reopen in January 2022, but this does depend on the COVID-19 situation at the time. 

All our other services are available online, as they have been throughout the COVID pandemic.

Our training sessions and events continue online.
