Political Leadership Programme Wales

Providing an invaluable insight into the Welsh political landscape and how policy is shaped

Every year, RCN Wales offers a training opportunity for nurses to develop their influencing skills and expand their knowledge of how health and social care policy is made. 

We will be holding the next course on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 December 2019.

To register your interest for 2019, please email

This course will appeal to those who want to:
  • Understand the influence of politics on healthcare policy
  • Influence change in health or social policy
  • Develop strategies to shape policy
  • Understand the legislative and policy context of devolution
  • Gain the support of external stakeholders
  • Improve their leadership skills   

A superb programme.

I feel privileged to have listened to the speakers and no longer feel intimidated by politics.

The programme made politics reachable and tailor-made for nursing.
