Student Information Officer Development Day - Being part of the RCN

10 Jul 2019 10:00 - 16:00

Meeting Room, Abbotsgate House, Hollow Road, Bury St Edmunds, IP32 7AU


The RCN has introduced a learning and development programme to give focus to the work of our SIOs and to help them develop their leadership potential.

This part of the programme aims to develop your knowledge and skills in gaining a thorough understanding of the RCN, its purpose and work.

The purpose of this workshop is to enable participants to understand the complexity of the RCN as a membership-led organisation and to understand what it means to be a member of a trade union. Participants will look at the role of trade unions in the workplace and why members choose to join the RCN. It will also look at RCN campaigns and examine how SIOs can contribute to these. This programme of events is free to attend and lunch is provided. When booking, please include any dietary, access or other requirements you have. 

Come and meet other SIOs at what promises to be an exciting and interactive day.

Taking part in these workshops is a great opportunity to access continuing professional development and networking with peers, sharing ideas and learning from other nursing professionals and students.

There are five workshop programmes that will be available in each region during a three-year period. The programme will be accompanied by a workbook in which SIOs can capture their learning.


Travel expenses for SIOs will be paid and lunch will also be provided. Please indicate your travel preferences, so any train travel can be booked for you by the regional team, as well as any dietary or access requirements when booking your place.
