Disability History Month at the RCN

For the RCN’s centenary, we look at the achievements of nurses and health care workers with disabilities over the last 100 years

The main speaker at this event has just been confirmed as award winning writer, poet, performer and rights activist Penny Pepper. More details to follow soon.


One of the goals of the RCN’s founders in 1916 was for the new College of Nursing to offer support for the general welfare of all their members. Many nurses had sustained injuries during service in the war, both physical and psychological. Among other things, the College established rest homes where members could relax, rejuvenate and recover. Nursing today remains a wide-ranging and sometimes risky profession where the potential for developing an illness or disability through work can be high.

Join to as we look back at the achievements of nurses and health care workers with disabilities over the last 100 years.
