A Force for Change: What is the Modern Nurse?

Short description: For the first of a series of RCN Public Lectures, funded by the RCN Foundation, we explore the role of the modern nurse

Society's idea of what a nurse should be is often outdated. The role of the nurse has developed considerably in recent years, putting nurses at the forefront of health care, with nurses actively leading on progression and change.
As part of our celebrations for Nurses’ Day 2015, join our expert panel of nurse leaders, health correspondents and politicians to explore nursing as a force for change in modern healthcare. From the career ward nurse to the nurse consultant; from the health visitor to the military nurse, the range of health care roles is truly phenomenal. Speakers include Jane Cummings (NHS England Chief Nursing Officer) and Professor Roger Watson (nursing researcher). The panel will be chaired by Jane Dreaper (BBC Health Correspondent)
This event is funded by the RCN Foundation and includes a drinks reception
Booking: The talk is free of charge, but space is limited and places must be booked in advance.
