RCN Annual International Nursing Research Conference & Exhibition 2016

Venue: Edinburgh Internation Conference Centre, Morrison Street, Edinburgh EH3 8EE

Date: Wednesday 6th April - Friday 8th April 2016

Tel: 0300 123 6789

Welcome to the RCN research conference website. If you are thinking of attending for the first time in 2016 in Edinburgh, I'd particularly like to encourage you - do have a look at last year's conference website to get a feel for how it runs. Alongside our usual program we are planning events and sessions aimed at early career researchers, PhD students, clinical researchers and those wanting to get into a research career. This will include career advice sessions and methodology streams. The conference has a friendly and inclusive atmosphere, whether you come to meet others or to deliver a paper and get constructive feedback. Please consider submitting an abstract – we have useful guidelines to help those not used to this – and please do register. See you in Edinburgh.
