Becoming a member of ICCHNR

By becoming a member of ICCHNR you will be joining a truly international collaboration of international community nursing researchers. There is no other international network that has community health nursing research as its primary purpose.

Established since 1995 as a UK charity, ICCHNR has been organising networking events around the world to bring community health nursing researchers together to share evidence and good practice in research, to debate and discuss ideas and to improve the contribution of nursing to community health.

Being a member will enable you not only to be informed about and take part in these events at a reduced rate, but also to help us to meet our charitable purpose of supporting community nurses from low income countries to take part.

There is also a student membership rate which we invite under-graduate and post-graduate students alike to take advantage of.
