23 - 24 October 2024, ACC Liverpool

Register for updates about this unique nursing event and make a note in your diary to join us later in the year.

Featuring more than 100 expert talks, clinical demonstrations, and even free yoga sessions, the first-of-its-kind event will be packed with masterclasses for nurses at every stage in their career.

Influential speakers will be there, including three of the UK’s chief nursing officers: Dame Ruth May (England), Sue Tranka (Wales) and Maria McIlgorm (Northern Ireland), along with Nursing and Midwifery Council chief executive Andrea Sutcliffe.

Nurses’ well-being will be focus of Nursing Live

Organisers say Nursing Live’s holistic focus on supporting nurses’ mental well-being is what sets it apart from other events in the nursing calendar. With this in mind, there will be sessions offering guidance on mental and physical health, as well as discussions about the importance of peer support, asking for help, and prioritising self-care. Nurses will be able to enjoy lifestyle activities designed for nursing professionals.

Nursing Live’s vibrant Festival Zone will be a hub of live entertainment, socialising, and informal networking.

There will be an in-depth look at topics such as leadership and empowerment, medicines management, technology and digital health, social care, student nursing, and international nursing.

And themed zones devoted to med-tech, pharmaceuticals and medical devices will allow nurses to see close-up the latest developments in all aspects of patient care.

Book your tickets to guarantee a place

RCNi senior nurse editor Richard Hatchett said: ‘When developing the Nursing Live programme, we wanted to strike a balance between learning and development, practical self-care support, and dynamic lifestyle content.

‘The depth and breadth of the programme, the calibre of the speakers and the wide range of specialist areas we’ll be covering, reflects that approach. There is a lot more to come so I would urge all nurses who can make the trip to book their free tickets now to guarantee a place.’
