Purpose of the Alumni Network
The purpose of the network is to create a body of nursing innovation and excellence, enabling members to share and support each other by pooling their expertise and knowledge. This will be achieved through the development of a closed Discussion Forum on Facebook that only RCN Alumni Network members can join. This Facebook page can be used by members to discuss professional issues and seek advice and guidance from fellow members.
Members of the network will be able to gain access to RCN Wales career development opportunities.
Alumni network members will receive invitations to a number of RCN events and development opportunities. These vary each year but may include events such as:
• RCN Wales Leadership Summit
• RCN Wales Advanced Nurse Practitioner Conference
• RCN Wales Health Care Support Worker Conference
• RCN Wales Research Chair Biennial Lecture
Alumni members are invited to attend these events free of charge, and may also be approached to deliver presentations to share their expertise and experiences with other nurses.
