In Conversation with Nursing Pioneers: Mental Health

10 Oct 2022 17:30 - 19:00

Online Event



Join a panel of nursing experts to explore the contribution of nurses to mental health care and treatment.
Ever since Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, nurses have blazed a trail in healthcare. They have pioneered improvements in practice, carried out cutting-edge research and advanced education: all with the aim of developing patient care.

This event focuses on nursing contributions to mental health care. From the work of refugee nurse Annie Altschul – the first professor of mental health nursing and a “wounded healer” herself – to the creative and clinical contributions of modern nurses including RCN Fellows, we explore how and why nursing is central to patient care in mental health.

The RCN recognises innovative nurses by awarding annual Fellowships. The Roll of Honour lists almost 200 RCN Fellows who have made exceptional contributions to advancing the science and practice of nursing and improving health and patient care.

This event will be hosted on Hopin. See ‘Conference details’ tab above for more information.
