Terms and Conditions for the RCN Nursing Awards 2023

The entry process

All entries must be received by Friday 28 April. Once your entry has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email.

Entries are accepted online only through the RCN Nursing Awards website. Please read the description of the category you wish to enter on the categories page on the website before you submit your entry. We strongly recommend that you write the body of your entry in a Word document and then cut and paste it into the online entry form to prevent work being lost. Make sure you keep to the word limit specified for each question.

Entry is free of charge and entrants may submit as many entries as they wish.

One finalist per entry will receive a complimentary ticket to the awards ceremony. If you are submitting a team entry this will apply to one member of the team only. If you want additional team members to attend the awards ceremony, their ticket(s) and travel will need to be funded by the entrant. This applies to all additional attendees.


Online judging will take place in May with interviews taking place virtually 4-15 September. All entrants will be notified via email to confirm whether their entry has been successful or not. If applicable, nominators will also be notified via email at the same time.

The judges' decision is final and cannot be disputed. Judging is conducted as a panel and no one person is responsible for deciding the winner of each category. Please note that feedback on your entry cannot be provided.


RCNi reserves the right to cancel this function. In the event of cancellation, RCNi will refund all booking fees in full. RCNi cannot accept liability for travel, accommodation or any other expenses incurred as a result of any cancellation or postponement of the event. Our liability for loss or damage incurred as the result of cancellation or postponement of the event is limited to the amount of your booking fee. These terms and conditions are governed by English law. The courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute.

Special requirements

Invitations for the awards will be sent out to guests via email in September 2023. A form will be included with the invitations requesting details of any special requirements. Simply complete and return to the registration contact as detailed on the form. This form must be returned to us by the specified date, otherwise charges may apply and guests’ requirements may not be met.

Lighting and special effects
It is the table booking party’s responsibility to inform their guest(s) that special effects, including strobe lighting, may be used on the night.

It may be necessary for RCNi to alter the venue and/or the date of this event for reasons beyond our control. We will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible and, where possible, transfer your booking to the new venue and/or date.
