The new one-stop-shop for nurses who are interested in Environmental Health is launching on Feb 14th!! EnviRN – The Knowledge Network at http://enviRN.org. We are launching on Valentine’s Day because it is a day in which we actively acknowledge our love. In this instance, we are acknowledging our love for nursing and our love for healthy environments. The American Nurses Association has just established an environmental health practice standard for all nurses – firmly placing environmental health in our professional domain.
 
EnviRN is not just a website – it is also an active learning environment in which we can interchangeably be both teacher and a learner.  It is a site for gathering essential environmental health information from experts; connecting with nursing researchers, and creating your very own blog posts on an area of interest to you.  You can check out the EnviRN calendar for conferences, webinars and other events. AND EnviRN makes it easy for you to both learn about hot environmental policies and jump right in with a letter to your congressman or senator. It’s a place to learn how to Green your hospitals, help your patients reduce their environmental health risks, or tell us about a raging policy debate in your city or state. It’s also the web home for the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments and we welcome any nurse to join our free monthly calls on environmental health and nursing education, practice, research and/or advocacy/policy. Register and add your profile and picture and start connecting with nurses around the country on environmental health.  Check it out!!!!    www.enviRN.org

You are invited to a free webinar on Friday March 4 at 1pm – 2pm EST to learn about EnviRN – The Knowledge Network and all the possibilities available on the site for nurses interested in environmental health. Space is limited so please RSVP to Katie Huffling at khuff002@son.umaryland.edu
