Janice Smyth has been appointed as the new director for the Royal College of Nursing in Northern Ireland.

Currently, deputy director in Northern Ireland, Janice joined the RCN in 2005 with specific responsibility for employment relations.

Ms Smyth spent several years in the independent sector as director of nursing of a large nursing home group.

She then joined the Northern Health and Social Services Board as a registration and inspection officer.

Other experience includes a nursing officer in the Nursing and Midwifery Advisory Group at Northern Ireland’s Department of Health, where she had responsibility for education, professional regulation, workforce and leadership.

Sandra James, chair of the RCN council, said: ‘Janice brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the job. At a time of extensive change within the Northern Ireland health service, Janice will lead nurses in Northern Ireland locally as well as representing them at a UK level.’
