Our AFEN & MFEN programme consists of weekly online webinars in Emergency Nursing. Please note access to the AFEN/MFEN webinar educational programmes require AFEN/MFEN membership.

All our memberships include a CPDme e-portfolio which enables the Emergency Nurse to capture their CPD evidence and create a personalised, specialised clinical / educational portfolio to demonstrate ongoing professional development in Emergency Nursing.

FEN have three levels of competencies : Associate level (AFEN) – Member (MFEN) and Fellow level (FFEN) which are freely available on our site. Please note only members can view and access our final accredited competencies for the full qualifications.

We also offer emergency nurses a qualification1 that is awarded for their practical work and underpinning knowledge. Our accredited associate level qualification (available in our members area) is being accredited with Agored Cymru which can be mapped to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and can cross European boundaries [Qualifications can cross boundaries: Guide to comparing qualifications in the UK and Ireland (qaa.ac.uk)]. We are working to complete qualifications at member and fellow levels. For those outside of the Ireland and the UK wishing to undertake the qualification, please contact us to determine if this is possible.
