RCN Careers

The RCN careers resource is designed to provide you with a range of ideas about the varying roles that you can enjoy throughout your health career. It has been jointly developed by the Royal College of Nursing and Health Education England to help registered nurses and the clinical support workforce across the UK plan their health careers effectively.


The resource has been developed to:


  • showcase the different roles within health care via a range of scenarios

  • include a case study and a video or podcast of a registered nurse or clinical support worker currently working in that role

  • enable you to identify an area of practice that you hope to enjoy

  • help you to understand how you might make this change

  • identify what education or training you might need to plan and undertake

  • highlight career options from these roles.
