RCN Northern IrelandĀ 

The RCN is the largest professional association and trade union for nurses, nursing assistants and nursing students. We campaign on issues of concern to nursing and patients, influencing health policies and promoting excellence in nursing practice on behalf of our members.

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 SenseMakerĀ® 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
