 An Exciting Opportunity to influence Critical Care Nursing!

Calling all BACCN Scotland 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 Scotland 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.
