Become a Member

There are many reasons why you should become a member of the UK’s first nursing league. As a body, we provide an active community for our members.

What do we offer:

  • an annual journal – the League News, contains a variety of interesting articles and a list of members’ addresses
  • scholarship funding for learning – we welcome applications for help with the cost of professional education, conference attendance as well as skills and activities unrelated to nursing
  • an All Day Meeting – in October each year in the Great Hall at Barts. An interesting speaker and a great opportunity to catch up with friends and hear about recent developments at the hospital
  • social events – we facilitate members with different opportunities to get together
  • a countrywide network of visitors – to provide comfort and friendship
  • a benevolent fund – to assist league members and Barts nurses in need


The League welcomes new members who are qualified nurses and meet one of the following criteria:

  • qualified as a nurse at St Bartholomew’s School of Nursing and Midwifery prior to September 1993
  • commenced training at St Bartholomew’s School of Nursing and Midwifery prior to September 1993 but transferred to City University, London, before qualification
  • qualified as a registered nurse at another university/hospital but has been employed as a nurse at St Bartholomew’s Hospital for 1 year at any time after qualifying
