Who We Are

The Association of Community Health Nursing Educators (ACHNE) provides a meeting ground for those committed to excellence in community and public health nursing education, research, and practice.  ACHNE was established in 1978 and is run by elected volunteer leaders who guide the organization in providing networking through the quarterly newsletter and membership directory and providing educational opportunities through publications and the Annual Institute.


A Message from ACHNE about Racial Equity

The Association of Community Health Nursing Educators (ACHNE) is committed to excellence in community and public health nursing education, research, and practice-advancing the health of populations. We understand that structural racism is rooted in long-standing discriminatory policies and must be examined and dismantled as an upstream structural determinant of health. We are committed to challenging nurse educators to develop the competencies essential for facilitating safe, respectful, and uncomfortable dialogue.  We are responsible for championing awareness requisite for effective system-level transformation.  As ambassadors in our communities, ultimately, our students will advance nursing practice in actionable change and collective impact for racial equity and justice.

June 2022: Preparing Nurses for Disaster Management, 1st Edition

Preparing Nurses for Disaster Management, 1st Edition by Joanne Langan Paperback With this guide, your students will learn how to prepare for and respond to disasters! Preparing Nurses for Disaster Management: A Global Perspective helps students develop the skills needed to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergency situations efficiently and effectively. It includes the personal stories of nurses who have experienced disasters, describing the specific incident, the response, what worked or didn’t work, and the lessons learned. Case studies show how to apply international response guidelines in providing care for those in need. Describing the roles of the different types of nurses, this text will help students feel more confident in handling the aftermath of both natural and man-made disasters.
