Membership

We know that when nurses and midwives are enabled to connect, lead, and influence healthcare, transformation happens. Membership of the FNF Academy provides the innovative space for like-minded nurses and midwives to build their confidence to lead: we want you to be part of it.

Senior nurse leaders are eligible to become members of the FNF Academy, and then all the nurses and midwives in their team receive the benefits of membership too.  

Thousands of nurses and midwives have already benefitted from the collective engagement, energy and influence that Membership brings. Join us!

From around £1 per employee per year, you and your team benefit from being part of a unique, prestigious community.

Current FNF Academy members include Integrated Care Systems, Healthcare Trusts, Military, Charity, Private and Voluntary care providers. We also welcome Higher Education Institutions.
