Membership

Membership of the Academy aims to enable increased access to leadership development and the Florence Nightingale Foundation® community. We create platforms for members to develop, connect, consult, inform, drive and improve services through mobilising their unique knowledge and leadership acumen. Increasingly we have become known as an organisation that provides independent thought leadership on the issues that are critical to nurses and midwives and an organisation that elevates the nursing and midwifery voice to have major influence and impact. Membership of the Academy enables nurses and midwives within your organisation to become part of this influential community.  

Membership of the Academy is accessed by the most senior nurse or midwife within your organisation joining as the named member. However, benefits are then available to all student and registered nurses, midwives and nursing associates. We welcome organisations from all sectors providing health and social care. Our current members include Healthcare Trusts, Integrated Care Systems, Military, Charity, Private and Voluntary care providers. We also welcome Higher Education Institutions to join and have developed a specific set of benefits for academics and students.
