The five-day annual nursing event and exhibition in June 2022 is open to all RCN members to learn, develop and share best practice, and to influence nursing and health care policy. It’s an opportunity to set the focus and direction of the College for the coming year.
All RCN branches, forums, UK representative committees and country/regional boards are encouraged to put forward at least one submission for the Congress agenda.
Previous agenda items have included debate around child poverty, 12-hour shifts, sepsis, climate change and ethical recruitment. Many debates lead to new RCN guidance or revised best practice – some can even bring a change in the law.
BJ Waltho, Chair of RCN Congress, said: “With so much happening in the last two years, I’m looking forward to receiving a high number of agenda submissions. We need your help to make this a truly memorable Congress.”
