Welcome to FEN

Welcome to the Faculty of Emergency Nursing (FEN) website.

We are a group of emergency nurses with members in: United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and United Arab Emirates.

Our primary goal is to improve patient care through the provision of education and competencies along a career pathway from registrants new to the specialism of emergency nursing to senior nursing staff, autonomous practitioners and consultant nurses.

We have three levels of competencies: Associate level (AFEN), Member level (MFEN) and Fellow level (FFEN) which are freely available on our site.

In 2020 we entered an exciting time. We launched our two year taught programme to support AFEN development. We have an assessors programme of monthly webinars as well as a monthly programme of webinars available to all FEN members.

We offer individual and corporate membership. Our corporate membership offers a discount on fees depending on the amount of staff joining.

We are working towards accrediting our competencies with an awarding body which can be mapped to the European Qualifications Framework – in essence members can be awarded with credits for their practical work and underpinning knowledge (there will be a supplemental cost for this).

If you are outside of the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, you are welcome to join the faculty and access our training programme. Should you wish to complete the clinical portfolio for accreditation please contact us.
