Use this form to tell us about the item(s) you would like to offer to donate. Please include any additional information you have about the items such as dates and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. By donating to the RCN Library and Archives we can ensure your nursing story is recorded and celebrated for years to come. We are keen to reflect nursing experiences across the UK, so please let us know about anything you would be willing to donate relating to your personal story and experiences in nursing. The RCN Library and Archive is home to hundreds of thousands of items connected to the RCN and wider UK nursing practice and experiences. It doesn’t matter about the age of your item; brand new or old – collecting them today ensures we have them now and in the future. Please note that we are not always able to accept all items offered to us.
