Welcome to the ANHE Education Forum!
We are a group of dedicated nurse educators in academia and clinical practice who support environmental nursing education for nursing students entering practice; advanced nursing education at the graduate level; and faculty development. We also offer a collegial place for nurse educators to collaborate with other nurses who value environmental health nursing education.
The Education Forum offers curricular recommendations to infuse environmental health nursing across nursing curricula, teaching tips to engage nursing students in environmental health as part of nursing practice, and an online, open access ANHE e-textbook, Environmental Health in Nursing. The Forum meets on a monthly basis.

Resources for Nurses & Educators
Nursing curriculum often does not include content on environmental health which is critical to adequately prepare nurses and nursing students to address these issues in practice. The Education Forum has developed a number of resources for nursing students, nurses, and nursing educators/faculty to make it easier to incorporate environmental health content in curriculum and address this gap in nursing education.
Environmental Health in Nursing – Winner of the 2017 American Journal of Nursing Book of the Year in Environmental Health Award, Environmental Health in Nursing is a free, easy to use, peer reviewed online textbook written by nurses. This e-textbook is an excellent resource whether you are just learning about environmental health or have more advanced knowledge. The Education Forum is currently in the process of writing the second edition. If you’d like to author a chapter or be involved with the process, join the Education Forum or reach out to email@example.com.
ANHE Curriculum Recommendations – The ANHE Education Forum has created environmental health recommendations for ADN, Baccalaureate, RN-BSN, and graduate nursing curricula to assist faculty in incorporating environmental health content into existing nursing curriculum. The recommendations include guidance for how specific content area can be incorporated into existing nursing courses, teaching strategies and resources, and the related nursing competencies.
Strategies for Incorporating Climate Change into Nursing Curriculum – In addition to the general environmental health recommendations, the ANHE Education Forum has developed a set of curriculum recommendations specific to climate change.
