Do you know a 'Rising Star' in the BAME nursing community?

Black History Month at RCN London

30 Aug 2018

As part of Black History Month, RCN London is inviting members across the capital to nominate 'Rising Stars' from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) nursing community.

A selection of nominees, hand-picked by a panel of judges, will be invited to RCN London’s special Black History Month event on 17 October at University College Hospital London.

The event, titled ‘Celebrating 70 years of the BAME contribution to health and social care’ will feature live music, inspirational talks and celebrity speakers as well as opportunities for members to learn new skills.

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 clinically in bands 2-7, or role equivalent (health care support workers included)
  • has overcome adversity.

Nominations must be submitted by Sunday 16 September 2018. If your nominee is chosen you will both be invited to attend the London Region Black History Month event on 17 October 2018.  

The event will feature inspirational talks and celebrity speakers, as well as opportunities to learn new skills.
