Welcome to the home of ADNE

The Association of District Nurse Educators (ADNE) is committed to promoting excellence in the education and practice of District Nursing.

Our purpose is in the educational preparation and support of District Nurses working in community settings across the United Kingdom.
ADNE Members and Associate Members are qualified District Nurses, with extensive knowledge and experience of university education and / or DN education within the practice setting. This site has been launched as a resource for information about District Nursing, District Nurse education, to raise the profile of District Nursing, increase awareness of the educational needs of community based nurses and to provide a forum for members to share ideas and research. A core belief of ADNE members is that the quality of nursing care is directly linked to the educational preparation of practitioners. The ADNE is dedicated to promoting excellence in community nursing care through the provision of high quality education.
