The Faculty of Emergency Nursing

Developing the knowledge, skills & capabilities of Emergency Nurses & to improve patient care

Our Vision


We are a group of emergency nurses with members in: United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland & other countries.

FEN enables Emergency Nurses to achieve their individual & collective potential, realise their ambitions & through education & networking, support them to deliver quality care to patients in emergency departments locally, nationally & internationally.

We offer Emergency Nurses CPD opportunities via online webinars, with open access to portfolio & assessment tools.  Members of FEN receive a CPDme e portfolio along with access to recorded webinars 24/7 and our FEN level competency documents that supplement our optional FEN qualifications (click image to view larger).

At the moment to be a FEN member, one must be a nurse registrant with a PIN; we may be in a position to consider membership for other members of the nursing workforce at some point in the future.

Frequently asked questions

No, the programme can be used flexibly, FEN will support a member to gain a qualification, equally they will support members just wishing to complete some CPD.

This was the only way that we could ensure flexibility for our members to commence our programmes at a time that suited them.

On completion of an evaluation following attendance at a webinar or watching on catch-up, you will receive a certification of attendance.

No, but the unit/qualifications have to be presented to the Internal Quality Assurance Board electronically for them to be accredited.

Both universities and awarding bodies use the CQFW (Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales) and Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) crediting system. So, attaining 120 credits at level 6 indicates the same degree of difficulty and number of study hours as what would be attained in the university’s final year of an honour’s degree programme. You will notice in job descriptions it often stipulates degree or equivalent – this is that equivalent. This can be clearly seen in the fan diagram found in the CQFW learner Guide[1].
