“Welcome to the National Nurse Nutrition Group (NNNG) website.
We are a group of nurses dedicated to promoting excellence in all aspects of nutritional care and promoting good nutritional practice for nurses across all specialities.
The NNNG was established in 1986 and soon after became a registered charity. Initially the focus of the group was enteral and parenteral nutrition support. Over recent years the focus of the group has widened to reflect the increasing profile of nutrition: from screening strategies and mealtimes to the complex nature of artificial feeding.
The group consists of nurses from the public and private sectors, secondary and primary care and embraces a truly multi-professional approach to its membership.
The NNNG is a founder group of the British Association of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN) and works with the Department of Health, National Patient Safety Agency, Home Intestinal Failure Network, Royal College of Nursing and the Care Quality Commission to influence present and future policy.
Our committee and its members continue to develop and promote robust nursing standards representing the increasingly important role of nurses in the nutritional care of patients.
Any national or international healthcare professional is welcome to join us, qualified or not. Join us to access advice with passion and a good measure of common sense.”
