Need for the Document[edit]

  • A Kenya Registered Accident and Emergency Nurse (KRAEN) needs a practice license in order to practice nursing in Kenya. It is an offence to practice nursing in Kenya without being licensed with the Nursing Council of Kenya.
  • One needs to have a valid license at all times to practice in Kenya.

Information which might help[edit]

  • Nurses and midwives aspiring to practice in Kenya must comply with the statutory requirements for registration and licensing. Failure to obtain the necessary documentations constitutes an offence under the Nurse Act Cap 257. Detailed information on documentation can be accessed via the Board’s website and from the Board’s offices.
  • Accident and Emergency nursing is a specialty within the field of professional nursing focusing on the care of patients who require prompt medical attention to avoid long-term disability or death.
  • Accident and Emergency Nurses treat patients who are suffering from trauma, injury or severe medical conditions and require urgent treatment. Since these specialists work in crisis situations, they must be able to quickly identify the best way to stabilize patients and minimize pain.
  • Accident and Emergency Nurses have a range of expertise demonstrated across a range of knowledge and skills which they acquire through Continuous Professional Development. This is reflected within their roles and responsibilities in Emergency Departments (ED) when they often have to work autonomously or in close partnership with other health professionals within the ED team to make diagnosis or take urgent decisions.
  • Accident and Emergency Nurses are most frequently employed in hospital emergency departments, although they may also work in urgent care centers, sports arenas, and on medical transport aircraft and ground ambulances.
