SenseMaker - Share your story

How is it for you?

Nursing staff across Northern Ireland are being asked to share their experiences of working through the global pandemic. These stories, collected through the SenseMaker® tool will support the RCN in influencing decision-making and policy, and create an important record of nursing in Northern Ireland at this critical time. Please take the time to share your story. #SenseMaker




All members belong to an RCN branch. Branches work across the HSC, independent, private and voluntary sectors to deliver services to members and provide opportunities for members to participate in, shape and influence the work of the RCN.
