The RCN's Student Survey


We want to hear from you!

Thank you for participating in this survey. Your unique views and experiences will help add to the understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing nursing students today. We will use the results of students’ views in our policy and campaigning work. Together, we can drive positive change and create a brighter future for nursing education and the nursing profession.

This survey is split into sections relating to different aspects of the nursing education journey, from motivation to study nursing to your plans after graduation. You might not find all sections relevant to you and you will be able to skip past these if needed. 

 Your email address and responses to this survey will remain confidential, and the results of this research will be anonymous. You will NOT be identifiable in any published results.

 The survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Depending on your individual needs, it may take less or more time.

 The survey closes at 11.59 pm on 27th May 2024

 If you have any questions about this survey, please get in touch with us at
