An Exciting Opportunity to influence Critical Care Nursing! 

Calling all BACCN Northern Region Members,

  • Are you keen to develop professionally as a critical care nurse?
  • Are you looking for career development opportunity 
  • Are you interested in finding out about (or influencing) the future of critical care nursing?

If yes to any of the above, we are seeking expressions of interest from enthusiastic critical care nurses from the Northern region to join a new inspiring BACCN committee. There are no specific qualifications required and you can be any grade of nurse in order to contribute to the local BACCN regional committee.

All you need to be is a BACCN member who is enthusiastic to take forward the work of the BACCN within your region. The purpose of the Regional Committee is to provide education and support for critical care nurses within the region. If you're passionate about critical care nursing and would like to be part of a team to help to further train and develop critical care nurses across the region, we would really love you to come along and join us.

Susie Lawley from the Northern Committee attended day two of this year's BACCN International Conference, which took place in London.  Here is Susie's feedback

"I really enjoyed attending day two of the BACCN international conference this year, the speakers were all very inspirational and it gave me much food for thought for ways  to develop and improve practice in the Critical Care Department where I work.  I would like to say thank you to the Northern committee for giving me the opportunity to attend."
