Our Story

Our Mission

GRNEN was created to connect nurses, educators, researchers and students who share a passion for improving the health of rural communities and an appreciation for the role nurses play in serving these communities.

We are driven by the belief that by uniting our community and providing a platform for meaningful conversation we will encourage global diversity and engage multiple perspectives to improve decision making and progress on issues that matter most to rural nurses and rural communities around the globe.
