The RCNi Nurse Awards have recognised some of the most impressive nurse-led projects of recent years.

Covering a wide range of specialties, including learning disability nursing, child health, cancer nursing, mental health nursing and nursing older people, the awards are widely regarded as the highest accolade for nurses in the UK.

Many of our past winners have seen their careers accelerate thanks to their RCNi Nurse Awards success and, since winning, have gone on to achieve remarkable accomplishments and influence nursing practice on a national scale.

RCNi managing director Rachel Armitage says: ‘We are passionate about celebrating nursing excellence across the UK. The RCNi Nurse Awards shine a light on the innovative practice and outstanding care delivered day in and day out by nurses and support staff from different specialties and backgrounds.’

The RCNi Nurse Awards are organised by RCNi on behalf of the RCN. The awards process culminates in a glamorous evening ceremony in London, celebrating the best of nursing and presenting an unparalleled opportunity for attendees to network and share nursing and healthcare innovations.
