And as the largest trade union of nursing staff and students in the UK – with close to half a million members – all we can see are the infinite possibilities for a brighter future. Join us and you will too.
The marketing team communicates the value of RCN membership within the nursing community, using business intelligence, research, and local insights. The team aims to improve member recruitment and retention throughout the UK, and to deliver new commercial products and services.
