Last chance to enter! Entries for the RCN Nursing Awards 2021 close on Monday 24th May

In the most challenging time in NHS history, the RCN Nursing Awards (formerly the RCNi Nurse Awards) are back to recognise excellence in nursing and healthcare. The 2021 awards acknowledge the outstanding efforts, commitment and achievements made by the whole of the nursing community.

This year, we want the entire nursing community to feel that they are represented by our Nursing Awards, so we have changed from Nurse to Nursing. This change aims to recognise every member in the healthcare community and celebrate their incredible contributions to outstanding patient care. The awards are still open to all UK nurses, midwives, health visitors, nursing students and nursing support workers, and you do not need to be an RCN member to enter the RCN Nursing Awards.

We want you to share your experiences of innovative nursing-led projects and inspiring nursing practice so we can highlight the remarkable accomplishments of you and your colleagues in every care setting and at every career stage. We can share your practice with a wider audience, so even more people will benefit from what you do.

Finalists and winners of the RCN Nursing Awards often see their careers accelerate thanks to the recognition and exposure they receive from entering the awards. Many past winners have gone on to even more outstanding achievements and have become influencers in nursing practice on a national scale.

Finally, and most importantly, we want to say a well-deserved thank you to the whole of the nursing profession for their consistent hard work and compassion, and celebrate the dedication of individuals and nursing teams who make up the amazing nursing profession.
