From The Master

Welcome!

Recognition of the Guild by the Court of Aldermen in 2016 was just the first step towards becoming the Worshipful Company of Nurses within the City of London. Our next step is to work together to establish the Guild as a Company without Livery. We recognise that we are in a unique position to further the work of nurses who have gone before us, offer support to nurses when and where it is needed and contribute to the professional development of nursing today through education and fellowship.

All trained nurses, from every speciality, whether just starting out in their career or retired are most welcome to apply. You can be as active as your time and other commitments allow.

The Company of Nurses Charitable Trust Fund (Registered Charity 1170982) is an essential component of the Guild which supports charitable and benevolent causes – a key element of the Livery movement. More information about the charitable work of the Guild, the core objectives, or how to make a donation, can be found on the website.

The membership section gives details on how you can apply, either as an annual or quinquennial freeman and the events page will give you an idea of our busy social calendar and exciting educational opportunities. You will be included in all our activities, receive an annual calendar of events and regular newsletters.

Our aim is to leave a lasting legacy for future generations of nurses so please explore our website to learn more about us.

Please do join us - a warm welcome awaits
