The RCN Foundation was created as a registered charity and company limited by guarantee in 2010 by the Royal College of Nursing. Our mission is to support and strengthen nursing to improve the health and wellbeing of the public. We do this by:
• supporting nurses in hardship by providing advice and funding
• providing grants for education and career development opportunities for the nursing community
• funding strategic nursing-led projects which aim to improve practice and benefit patient care.
