The Work Group of European Nurse Researchers (WENR) has been networking for advancement of nursing research in Europe for 25 years. The most well-known activity of WENR is its biennial conferences organized in all parts of Europe. They have provided a unique opportunity for nurses to come together to discuss nursing research and clinical practice. Recently, WENR has published a position paper in order to reinforce its own and International Council of Nurses, World Health Organization and The Standing Committee of Nurses of the European Union (PCN) aims. The Work Group of European Nurse Researchers recommends that the recommendations of The Council of Europe report be adopted formally by national nurses associations. Future activities of WENR include promotion of infrastructures and research capacities in member countries, and planning of new scientific activities.
