RCN Congress 2019
Sunday 19 - Thursday 23 May 2019, ACC Liverpool
Have you ever thought you’d love to be funded to go to an event where you can network with likeminded colleagues, have your say on important nursing decisions, and learn new things about nursing? RCN Congress - one of the biggest events in the nursing calendar - is a melting pot of ideas, visions and voices and we’d love for you to join us in Liverpool next May (19 to 23).
As a member of your Branch / Forum you are eligible to be considered for funding to attend Congress as a voting member. Apply here and we will be in touch should you be successful. You’ll need your membership number to complete the form:
The deadline for completing the form is 17 October 2018.
In addition, there is a limited amount of discretionary funding available in RCN Wales to provide support for members who have not attended Congress previously. For example, this may include funding for individual members or to fund coaches to take groups of members. Speak with your Branch about this funding.
The Nurse Staffing Levels Act (Wales) 2016 was one of the first pieces of legislation enacted by the Welsh Government and it is the first of its kind in Europe. The historic law followed a dedicated campaign by RCN Wales, prompted by members’ concerns that short-staffing was compromising their ability to care for patients safely.
Watch the film which details RCN Wales' success in lobbying for legislation to improve patient care, here.
