Nursing in London - why it's the best place

Here at RCN London our latest campaign profiles nursing staff from a range of health and care settings across the city and shares their personal and moving stories behind their motivations to choose nursing as a career. 

Our campaign is supported by NHS England, CapitalNurse and a number of trusts around London and through it we are going to change the narrative around nursing and health care by promoting nursing for the brilliant career it is.  

"Nursing is about being with people in their most vulnerable state, from the beginning of life right through to the end. #NursingLondon is about nursing staff across the capital celebrating the work they do and inspiring the nurses of tomorrow."

Regional Director, Jude Diggins.
