ENDA - European Nurse Directors Association

How best to empower people and organisations?

With passion and expertise.

If that is also your philosophy, then ENDA is the right place for you to shape the future of Healthcare in Europe.

Iris Meyenburg-Altwarg, Dipl. Pflegewirtin, RN

ENDA feels it’s Springtime:

things are moving and its direction is being newly mapped.

Revised statutes and a clear mandate for its membership to become more diverse and inclusive are at its core. The Association is an opportunity for Nurse Leaders from a wide field of employment to influence, learn and nurture best practice. Come and join us! We want to hear your voice for ENDA to be forward-looking, thoughtful and dynamic.

Honorary President Prof. Jacqueline Filkins

To be ‘in charge’ is certainly not only to carry out the proper measures yourself but to see that everyone else does so too.
Florence Nightingale
The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will or knowledge. And to do this in such a way as to help him gain independence as rapidly as possible.
