About NEN

What will the programme deliver?

This initiative is for primary care practice nurses, community nurses and healthcare professionals to encourage the development of local networks who share common interests and to provide support through educational resources and local study days. In particular, to help equip nurses and healthcare practitioners with the knowledge they will need in the management of patients with long-term conditions in daily practice.

In the coming months, we will aim to identify the hot topics where additional free-to-access CPD is required, how this should be delivered and when it is needed.

We will support our network online, in-person and in-print by providing free resources which are widely accessible and complement the challenging role of the practice nurse and the time constraints experienced. 

How will the programme be developed?

Once topics have been identified, the programme will be developed specifically for primary care nurses by an independent panel of primary care experts.

How will the programme be structured?

Each programme will include CPD modules and regional study days which will:

  • Review the latest evidence with new or updated Guidelines
  • Translate this learning into practical guidance and need-to-know knowledge
  • Encourage exchanges with colleagues and the sharing of best practice
  • Provide you with the tools to enable you to deliver the best patient care
