Payment of membership fees can be completed on our website via PayPal.  Before payment can be completed you have to register as a new member on the EANS website (unless you are already an existing member).  It may take a few days for your registration to be approved.  After your registration is approved, a PayPal button will appear when you log in to your profile.  By selecting this button you can complete payment of the annual membership fee.  We would prefer you to set up an annual recurring payment schedule, which will mean that your membership fee will be automatically withdrawn from your PayPal account on the same date each year.

An alternative is offered if you are not able to use PayPal.  However, we strongly prefer and encourage members to use PayPal.  You can transfer the EANS membership fee to the EANS bank account using a bank transfer. Please email [email protected] for details.

You will not be a member of EANS until you have paid your membership fee.

 

Fellow of EANS.  In addition to the above, there is also an opportunity for a Full Member of EANS to apply to become a Fellow of EANS.

EANS accepts applications for Fellowship on an annual basis, usually in May/June.

Fellows are individuals with an established career in nursing research who have made significant contributions to the advancement of nursing science in Europe through scholarship and research. They will have an acknowledged track record and will have demonstrated a considerable breadth and depth of achievement in publications and grant funded research.

If you are a member of EANS and think that you meet the criteria for Fellowship (see below), please look out for the invitation to apply which is usually sent out in May each year.  Fellowship costs no more than full membership and you have the same rights as any other member. Fellowship is, however, an acknowledgement of your contribution to nursing science and an excellent indication of your standing in our profession.

Only full members of EANS can apply to become a Fellow of EANS. Members must have paid their membership fee and registered via the website (http://european-academy-of-nursing-science.com/). Nursing Scientists who are not  full members of EANS are warmly invited to apply for EANS Membership and can subsequently respond to the next upcoming call for Fellowship applications.

  2. Published a minimum of five peer reviewed papers (NOT including papers originating from or as part of the applicant’s PhD) in scientific journals listed in citation indices as first author, corresponding author or final author.
