Anne Marie Rafferty, Professor of Nursing Policy at King’s College London, has been elected as the next President of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN). The term of office for the new President will run from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2020.

Anne Marie is a Fellow of the RCN and campaigned for the presidency on key issues including securing legislation for safe staffing levels; ensuring the diversity and inclusivity of the nursing voice is engaged in designing and delivering RCN policy; reinstatement of student support and investment in continuing professional development and to pursue a new direction of travel for the RCN, which has faced uncertainty in recent times.

During her campaign, Anne Marie spoke of how under her leadership, nursing would ‘become a social movement, drawing on our collective strengths and talents to target the big health and care challenges of the day’.
