The RCN Branch and Officers are keen to find new Representatives for the East Kent Trusts and the Independent sector. We welcome applications from all members, HCAs, Support workers and Nurses. You can read more about being a rep or come to one of the branch meetings and find out from an existing rep exactly what they do.
*** Members need to inform the branch if they are attending any meetings by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org This will help us know when we arrange the seating and refreshments. If you are diabetic or vegetarian this information would also help for catering purposes. If members are pre-booked we can also arrange revalidation certificates for Continuous Professional Development Logs as required by NMC. ***
