We're continuing to celebrate International Nurses Day by recognising the hugely important role that nurses and nursing associates in social care play in the lives of people who draw on care and support. 

Celebrating nursing in social care 

As part of our celebrations, we're hosting a series of face-to-face events across England which are specifically for registered nurses and nursing associates. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to connect with other nurses in your region, share good practice and contribute to professional discussion and debate, as well as taking the time to recognise the contribution you make. The events will be attended by Deborah Sturdy, the Chief Nurse for Adult Social Care, who is keen to hear your views. 

Dates and venues:

  • Eastern - Wednesday 18 October, 10:00-14:30, Cambridge. .
