The region is calling for members to nominate those from the BAME nursing community who have made an exceptional contribution to health and care in the city.
Nominees can either be from a BAME background or primarily work within BAME communities.
Winners will be crowned at RCN London’s special Black History Month event, being held in Cowdray Hall, RCN HQ, on 18 October 2019.
Nomination is open to all those who work within the NHS and the independent sector.
A rising star is a member of staff who:
- goes over and above the call of duty
- is key to the future of nursing (locally and nationally)
- is from a BAME background and/or works within BAME communities
- works in a nursing role across bands 2-7, or role equivalent (health care support workers included)
Nominations must be submitted by 20 September 2019. If your nominee is chosen you will both be invited to attend the London Region Black History Month event on 18 October 2019.
The event will feature inspirational talks and celebrity speakers, as well as opportunities to learn new skills.
The event will see frontline nurses from the BAME community discuss their experiences in nursing with Professor Laura Serrant OBE, one of only six black Professors of Nursing in the UK, sharing the story behind her journey.
The event will also feature live music, a special lunch and a range of educational workshops that will help members learn new skills.
