Nordic / Baltic Advanced Practice Nursing Educators

Nordic/Baltic Advanced Practice Nursing Educators NORDPLUS network was established in 2019. In the network we have members from Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Iceland, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and Åland.

The partners have been chosen to represent different geographical areas of the Nordic and Baltic region and phase of developing advanced nursing programs at Master level.


What we do

Our mission is to develop advanced practice nursing education in the Nordic and Baltic countries. To achieve this mission, our network is dedicated to sharing knowledge and best practices among members, colleagues, governments and the public.

Our main activities include:

  • developing and implementing a further education module for educators involved with the APN program in the Nordic / Baltic region,
  • creating a pedagogical toolkit for APN educators,
  • organizing events to support and enhance the development of APN roles in health care in Nordic / Baltic region.

The role of advanced nurse practitioners in the Nordic and Baltic countries is still emerging and collaboration between the countries in higher education will support the development of high-quality education with working life collaboration.
