RCN: Nursing Support Workers’ Day – 24 November

Please see below for a message from the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) on Nursing Support Workers’ Day on Tuesday 23rd November.

Nursing Support Workers’ Day puts a spotlight on the valuable contribution that Nursing Support Workers (NSWs) make in nursing teams to provide safe and effective care for resisdents across health and social care.  In the RCN, we use the term nursing support workers to describe all in support roles in nursing, including care assistants and carers.

As part of RCN Scotland celebrations, we are launching some new resources including the following on-demand webinars;

  • Caroline Steven, Professional Lead Learning & Development talks about the RCN’s new education strategy and what this means for NSWs.
  • Boost your mental wellbeing with a practical meditation from Hawa (Wellbeing & Life Coach)

We are also launching a new programme of induction sessions for new nursing support worker members to help welcome them to the RCN.  These resources will be available on the 23rd November at the following webpage- https://www.rcn.org.uk/wecare https://www.rcn.org.uk/wecare

These activities are in addition to our existing programme of live education events for nursing support workers, bite-size guide video series and bespoke training sessions for workplaces.  You can learn more about these by contacting [email protected]
