Commenting, Theresa Fyffe, RCN Scotland Director, said:

“It’s not often that coming fourth is worth celebrating, but this really is an amazing result that we need to shout about. 

“Our staff are our greatest asset in supporting tens of thousands of nurses, health care support workers and nursing students across Scotland. We know what an invaluable job our nursing staff do, often in very difficult circumstances both at work and at home. It’s really important that they are able to keep on providing high quality care to the public. RCN staff help them to do that every single day of every year.

“The result is a reflection of the hard work staff put in year in, year out, and it is their enthusiasm and commitment that makes the RCN such a great place to work."
