Helping nurses help each other
Britain’s Nurses is an independent organisation, set up to recognise, promote and celebrate all that’s best in nursing in the UK today.
Our development followed extensive research amongst nurses themselves and the general public overseen by a Coalition Group comprising Department of Health, NHS, RCN, Unison and the UK Council of Deans, and we continue to enjoy the active support from those organisations, as well as over 40 individual nursing associations.
Funded by a combination of on-site advertising, partnership activities and public relations programmes, Membership of Britain’s Nurses is free to all nurses in the U.K.
An independent Advisory Board will be established to monitor activities and maintain the standards of Britain’s Nurses. The Advisory Board will comprise the Patron of Britain’s Nurses, together with a number of the most senior individuals from the public and independent healthcare and medical communities.
This website is the heart of Britain’s Nurses, where nurses can exchange views, share experiences, recontact old colleagues and find out more about the many opportunities – both on and off duty – open to nurses today.
Here we feature social and leisure aspects of nursing, educative and informative features, special offers open only to nurses, as well as extensive interactive and user-driven content. We also, of course, include links to many other nursing, NHS, independent and university sites.
The best of nursing today
Though aimed at current and potential nurses, www.britainsnurses.co.uk will be open to other interested observers, allowing the public to see for themselves the best of the realities of nursing today.
In future, Britain’s Nurses will also be running regional and national publicity campaigns to raise profile and appreciation of the community of nurses in Britain today, and a programme of commercial partnerships and sponsorships under the banner of ‘Supporting Britain’s Nurses’.
By the way, we will, of course, never divulge any personal information or contact details of members to any other organisation.
