New services include:

  • Two Twitter feeds, both for the RCN and chief executive Dr Peter Carter,
  • Dr Carter's blog,
  • Regular podcasts on current issues featuring high profile nursing figures.

Dr Carter said: ‘I hope that by using Twitter, blogging and podcasts, we will be able to communicate continuously and effectively to more and more people, and to ensure that the voice of nursing is heard and understood.'

Details of the drive are contained in an RCN video.
