Royal College of Nursing Council Seminars and Working Groups

Scope and Content

These meetings discuss various topics including Council and committee structure, Royal College of Nursing priorities and objectives and professional nursing issues.

Administrative / Biographical History

Seminars and Working Groups are established to deal with more complex issues than can be covered in a standard length Council meeting. They mostly predate the reorganisation of Council's ways of working in 2003, which created special committees of Council to deal with grouped topics. See RCN2/15.

Access Information

Open meeting papers and reports may be viewed. Closed meeting papers remain closed for ten years from 31st December of the year. Other restrictions include data protection and the review of information pertaining to legal cases.
