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.

For Immediate Release: ACHNE MEMBERS INSTRUMENTAL IN DEVELOPMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH NURSING SCOPE AND STANDARDS OF PRACTICE

ACHNE leaders and members played an important role in the development of the third edition of The Public Health Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, an essential document for every public health nurse practicing in the United States. The scope of practice statement answers the who, what, when, where, how, and why questions of public health nursing. The standards provide authoritative statements of the actions and behaviors that all registered public health nurses are expected to competently perform, regardless of role, population, specialty, and setting.
