All nurses are welcome to join RCNA. You can join at any time during your career, starting as a Student Member and upgrading to become a full RCNA Member once you have finished your nursing studies. Later, as you demonstrate your commitment to excellence in nursing and to RCNA you can apply to become a Fellow of RCNA.

Thinking about leaving nursing? Have a look at our Retired Member option so that you can stay in touch with your profession even when it’s time for you to enjoy retirement.

There are also options for professionals who are not nurses but who make a significant contribution or have a significant connection to the nursing profession. See our Companion member information to find out more.

If you employ nursing staff, why not become a Corporate Member and work in partnership with RCNA in public relations and profiling activities?
