The European Network of Nursing in Higher Education (ENNE) was founded in 1998 and is a network that consists of representation from nursing departments in higher education institutions in 14 European countries where problem based learning (or a form of problem based learning) is used within the curriculum. One institution per country is permitted within the network and the School of Nursing and Midwifery (SNAM) at Plymouth University became a member in November 2015.
The main purpose of ENNE is to promote teacher and student exchange. The student exchange takes place through a five day ‘intensive programme’ held in April/May each year for approximately six second/third year nursing students per participating institution. This presents an exciting opportunity for students wanting to broaden their experience and knowledge of health care systems in different European countries.
