Enter our 2023 RCN Nursing Awards and share your innovations
Do you believe that your own innovation or project deserves to be given a platform to be developed and influence nursing practice nationally?
Do you know of a colleague that deserves recognition on the national stage for the work they do as a learning disability nurse, support worker or nursing student?

‘Learning disability nurses are adept at innovation – it’s in your DNA – so the RCN Nursing Awards are the perfect opportunity to show the profession what you’ve got’
Perfect opportunity to showcase your work
Last year’s learning disability nursing category winner was Gerard Wainwright, and the previous year was Rebecca Crossley. In 2017, the category also had the overall winner of Nurse of the Year in Melanie Davies, whose work with the Paul Ridd Foundation was inspirational and played a part in the mandatory training in his name for Wales.
Equally, it maybe that you want to thank a colleague for all the support they have given you.
If so, then the RCN Nursing Awards are the perfect opportunity to showcase this work. Entries are open until 28 April.
There are 15 categories this year, including learning disability nursing, nursing student, nursing support worker and team of the year.
There are also three new categories this year; digital innovation, researcher of the year and workforce initiative of the year. And why not also consider entering the greener nursing practice category if you have been involved in a project to help reduce healthcare’s carbon footprint and CO2 emissions that are threatening our planet.
Learning disability nurses are adept at innovation – it’s in your DNA – so the RCN Nursing Awards are the perfect opportunity to show people what you’ve got.
