All those who join will be offered a warm and friendly welcome into The Worshipful Company of Nurses and there are many opportunities for Liverymen and Freemen to meet other members of the Worshipful Company. A wide range of social activities is organised throughout the year for members and their guests. Functions are often held in venues that are not readily accessible to members of the public, some within the great Livery Halls of the City of London.

If you are not already a Freeman of the Company and are interested in applying to become a Freeman of The Worshipful Company of Nurses, please go to the Joining our Company page of this website and complete a Membership Application form

Freedom Ceremonies

Freedom ceremonies will be held periodically throughout the year when new applicants will have the opportunity to be granted Freedom of the Worshipful Company. Freedom of the Worshipful Company is a privilege that is conferred for life and demonstrates a commitment to The Worshipful Company of Nurses. Invitations to Freedom ceremonies will be sent to new applicants. The ceremony is usually followed by a reception which is open to guests.

Fellowship Networks

The Worshipful Company of Nurses also encourages members to build local fellowship networks. Please log in to the members' directory to see who lives nearby and perhaps invite them to share a cup of coffee or lunch and enjoy a friendly meeting of fellow members. If you would like to discuss how to hold a fellowship event or ask more questions, please email cl***@co*************.uk 

Please note that application forms for events will appear on this website approximately 6 weeks before the event.
