Nurse Specialist Programme

Are you working as an IBD nurse, but want help and funding for your training & development? Are you an IBD nurse specialist with an MSc who wants to Credential as an advanced nurse practitioner?

We want everyone to have an IBD nurse. We want everyone to have access to high-quality, sustainable IBD care.  And we want to help you best support everyone with Crohn’s and Colitis. 

To help achieve this we’re launching our new Nurse Specialist programme to:

  • Annually fund 10 MSc’s in advanced nursing practice, and
  • Annually recruit 10 MSc qualified nurse specialists to complete RCN Advanced Practice Credentialing

Both become Crohn’s & Colitis UK nurse specialists.

We will be supporting Crohn’s & Colitis UK nurses through sharing best nursing practice and giving access to charity resources and support.
