Nurses with executive responsibility for community nursing services are welcome to join the QNI’s Community Nurse Executive Network (CNEN) © to share and learn about issues relating to workforce, education, policy and service planning.

CNEN acts as a resource centre, where ideas and learning can be shared and interaction with colleagues facilitated, to enhance best practice and improve nursing care in the community. The network brings together high-profile speakers to brief members about the latest developments and trends affecting the sector and how to manage future challenges.

The Chair of the network is Helen Mehra, and the Vice Chair is Gabbie Parham (appointed in February 2022).

Who is it for

CNEN is a membership-based network open to chief nurses, directors, deputy directors of nursing and equivalent roles, including interim posts, within provider organisations that work in community healthcare.

You do not have to be a Queen’s Nurse to join, and membership is free.

We hold regular meetings for the network members. Click here to see the dates of the upcoming events.

How to join

Please note, membership of the network is restricted to chief nurses, directors and deputy directors of nursing, or equivalent roles within provider organisations that work in community healthcare.
