Royal College of Nursing Research Institute
The Royal College of Nursing Research Institute (RCNRI) was formerly the research team at the Royal College of Nursing Institute from 1996-2007. When the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) wished to develop a strategic alliance with another Higher Education Institute to enhance its ability to deliver high quality research, the University of Warwick was successful in its bid to be the RCN’s strategic alliance partner for research. The RCNRI was previously a research centre within the School of Health & Social Studies, but moved to the Health Sciences Division within Warwick Medical School at the University of Warwick on 1st February 2013.
