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 Work Group 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 our crowning project the ANHE e-textbook, Environmental Health in NursingWe are a welcoming group.  Please join us in our work.  The Work Group calls are the second Monday of the month at 7:30 PM.  The times are U.S. Eastern Time.
