Become a nurse
The RCN is a trade union and professional body, so we aren’t directly involved in the training of new nurses. If you haven't yet started training to become a nurse, you’ll find all the information you need on nursing as a career, and a course finder, on the NHS Careers website.Find out more about starting your training to become a nurse
