AFEM Nursing

The AFEM Nursing Committee was established to create a framework to guide the development of emergency nursing practice in Africa. The group comprises African and international emergency nursing colleagues with experience in clinical practice, research, education and leadership. The remit of the group included delineation of levels of emergency nursing practice, evaluation of cognitive and psychomotor skill sets, and consideration of movement between levels of emergency nursing practice in Africa. This then led to the development of the African Emergency Nursing Curriculum (AENC) and the pilot of the Global Nursing Mentorship Programme.
