RCN Students

Student membership

For student nurses and student midwives

Are you ready to join the world’s largest nursing union and professional body? For £0.84 a month, you'll have access to valuable learning resources and careers advice, plus a range of other benefits. And you'll be part of a worldwide movement to change nursing for the better.

Great news if you're doing a Trainee Nursing Associate or Nursing Apprenticeship programme, our health practitioner membership is best suited to you.
