New Association of Nephrology Nurses Launched in the UK

25th June, 2018

Renal Services is pleased to support the new Association of Nephrology Nurses (ANN UK), launched on 20th June at UK Kidney Week.

ANN UK is a non-profit organisation that aims to support registered and non-registered nurses through education, research, evidence-based practice at both professional and clinical levels. The training and development will help to raise the national clinical standards for nurses working in kidney care.

Renal Services shares the Association’s vision as we encourage all our nurses to advance their specialist renal skills and careers through training and development.

To support the new Association we are offering to underwrite the membership fee for all our nursing staff across our clinics.

Nurses will be able to access all resources including:

  • A forum to develop and share best clinical practice, research and foster quality improvement to inform and enhance care of patients with kidney disease
  • Promoting and developing strong nursing leadership within kidney care and increase the nursing voice influencing national policy and workforce development
  • Creating and leading innovative nurse training and professional development, generating and/or endorsing national curriculum for nurses working in kidney care
  • Developing, updating and promoting standards for best nursing practice in kidney care
