Network of European nursing competent authorities

The network of European nursing competent authorities is an informal network with representatives across the EU.

Nursing competent authorities are organisations responsible for regulating nurses.

The network’s role is to make sure that public protection is maintained and promoted around Europe. It supports closer collaboration between nursing competent authorities, while raising their voices across the EU.

The implementation of the EU Directive on the recognition of professional qualifications is a key focus for the network, where knowledge and experience sharing is encouraged.
