The first half of the year has been very exciting in setting the future of the EU nursing research with the ENRF monitoring the work of the EU Institutions and focussing on integrating nursing research into the EU policy arena.

Bringing the nursing researchers’ knowledge together to strengthen the delivery of evidence-based nursing in order to add rigour and credibility to the political decision-making and outcomes is key, knowing that nursing research is a growing field even though it remains a relatively new activity in many countries.

But before continuing our hard work, we all need to take a well-deserved break and recharge batteries to face the upcoming months and a busy EU agenda. Therefore, we wish all a relaxing summer holiday.
