Get Involved

To extend our reach, we always need members willing to volunteer and become active in supporting our aims. Why not make this the year you decide to get active – either by joining the RCN, meeting with your local branch, supporting our campaign activity or training to be an accredited representative? The RCN is a member-led organisation and the more people who are prepared to get involved, the more we can achieve together. 

RCN reps

Being a rep can be one of the most fulfilling activities you can undertake. Fully supported by the RCN at every turn, we will equip you with the skills and knowledge to represent your colleagues and your region.
