RCNi – welcome to our fresh new look

We have listened to the feedback we receive from our readers and subscribers and have introduced a number of improvements to our websites, digital products, and our service to you

Come with us on a short journey to see what has changed.

A fresh new look

You will notice that we have made our online articles easier to read, with a clearer layout and more ways to engage with the content by commenting or sharing.

We use a responsive design to ensure articles can be read on any device and all modern browsers (IE9+).

Notable highlights of the new design are:


Keep updated with either the current issue’s table of contents emailed directly to you as it is published, or with a daily or weekly round-up of the latest nursing news within your speciality or areas of interest. E-alerts can be removed and added at any time.


We have enhanced our search by using sophisticated filters. Search by journal, section, specialty, author, date, relevance.

Citation and references

Easy citation downloads and live reference linking via Crossref ensure a seamless journey through related content. Our articles are also referenced on LOCKSS, Proquest, Portico, PubMed, and Ebsco, and we support open access, to make our content as usable as possible.

Article sharing and metrics

The current print issue is highlighted along with its table of contents next to each article, to make it easier for you to navigate our content.

Our online articles are enhanced where possible with graphics and extra supplementary files (including multimedia).

Advanced article metrics combine traditional and altmetrics in one handy space. We’ve also made it easier to comment and share articles on social media.

RCNi Portfolio

We have updated the RCNi Portfolio to include an option to download a summary page. This summary page is an automated check-list showing exactly where you are with your revalidation, and saves printing out your entire portfolio.

We have also updated the look and feel of the Portfolio PDF download and improved the overall design.

It is a professional easy-to-read document that details all your revalidation requirements, and is a handy way to review and keep track of your nursing career.
