About us

While the footprint of European Specialist Nurses is rapid increasing, it is time to establish a special Foundation to handle these efficient and in professional standards. FoNSE is a non-profit an foundation related to the European Specialist Nurses Organisation (ESNO) and with their goals and mission.

Our task is to shape and implement all those projects and activities within the frame of the long term ESNO strategic plans and cross border health themes, with the goal to provide relevant and high standard of professional care in European health to patients and citizens.

The way of contributing
To demonstrate the value of specialist care nursing research for improving the quality of health care.
To advance and share knowledge of specialist nursing practice through research.
To increase personal commitment by specialist nurses to evidence based practice.
To encourage the appropriate use of research for specialist nursing.
To promote awareness of the contribution of specialist nursing to healthy public policies and alliances.

Het is onze taak om al die projecten en activiteiten vorm te geven en uit te voeren in het kader van de strategische plannen van de Europese Specialist Nurses Organisation, en Europees grensoverschrijdende gezondheidsthema’s op lange termijn, met als doel relevante en hoogwaardige professionele zorg in de Europese gezondheidszorg aan patiënten en burgers te bieden
