Supporting and enhancing the development of competence in neuroscience nursing


BANN aims to promote evidence-based practice and person centred care. The underpinnings of such principles are education and application of knowledge to practice. In order to meet this aim, BANN’s strategic approach to education involves:

  • The provision of information relevant to contemporary neuroscience nursing practice
  • Scholarships and grants to promote knowledge/skill development
  • Information on national neuroscience related courses


BANN’s publication “Headlines” aims to disseminate information relevant to neuroscience nursing practitioners. In addition, BANN’s annual conference provides opportunities for nurses working in the field of neurosciences the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills through multidisciplinary presentations, workshops and information dissemination. The range of seminars and workshops available at the conference provides delegates a choice in order that they can attend sessions that meet their practice needs.

Scholarships and Grants (Financial support)

BANN currently offers education grants to promote and develop practice. These are available for attending conferences, study tours or undertaking research related to the practice of neuroscience nursing.
