The Rising Star awards are open to nurses, midwives, nursing support workers and nursing/midwifery students from the Black, Asian and minoritised ethnic community who you think have made an outstanding contribution to health and care in the capital over the past year. 

The awards are now in their seventh year, and we are already looking forward to celebrating the winners at our Black History Month event on the 25 October. But first we have to find them! And we need your help, because they are working with you in health and care settings across the London.

Get your thinking cap on

Maybe someone you work with has transformed patient care or spoken up for previously unheard groups. Maybe you have a colleague who has spoken up about discrimination. We want to hear all about them. There is lots of fantastic nursing taking place across the capital and now is your chance to shout about it.

We welcome nominations from within and outside the NHS, including nursing staff working for agencies, in general practice and in the independent sector. Anyone you nominate must be an RCN member.

Have a read of the eligibility criteria before nominating.
