RCNi Careers and Jobs Fairs are virtual for 2021

We are delighted that our jobs fairs can still go ahead this year despite COVID-19. Using the latest event software, we have turned our free nursing careers and jobs fairs into virtual events.

You can still meet the UK’s key nurse employers who will be interviewing on the day, gain valuable CPD hours at the online seminars and network with other delegates. All you need is an internet connection and a device to join us, wherever you are. Simply register for free entry before the event.

Here is how it will work:
