History of CRNME
The Centre for Research in Nursing and Midwifery Education was established in 1998 and the Centre is funded by endowments from the General Nursing Council Trust for England and Wales and the Midwife Teacher Training College Trust.
In July 2013, after celebrating 21years of the Centre, the CRNME Legacy Management group was founded. The aim of the legacy management group is to ensure the future direction of the remaining endowments held at the University of Surrey.
