About Royal College of Nursing

The RCN is a membership organisation of more than 435,000 registered nurses, midwives, health care assistants and nursing students. We are both a professional body, carrying out work on nursing standards, education and practice, and a trade union.

Our members work in a range of health care specialties and settings in the NHS and independent sectors. We also have members based overseas, and members who are retired. Around 35,000 nursing students are members.

We are governed by an elected Council of 17 members, chaired by Sue Warner, which delegates the running and management of the organisation to our Acting Chief Executive & General Secretary, Donna Kinnair. Our President, Anne Marie Rafferty, is a member of RCN Council.

We are a Royal Charter body registered with the Privy Council and, because trade unionism is not our sole activity, we are on a special register of trade unions which means our rules differ slightly to other trade unions.
