MS Nurse Professional is an accredited online training tool which aims to consolidate standards of MS nursing care across Europe.
Over 3,000 multiple sclerosis (MS) nurses have enrolled for MS Nurse Pro between 2012 and end of 2016.
MS Nurse Pro is currently available in nine language versions across eleven European countries.

New training module
At present, MS Nurse Pro consists of five accredited online training modules with a proven track record in improving the specialisation of MS nurses:
- Understanding MS
- Clinical Presentation
- Diagnosis and Assessment
- Care and Support
The programme’s success has prompted EMSP to plan a sixth training module: on rehabilitation. The ECTRIMS Board has already endorsed and agreed to fund this initiative.
Norway is the most recent country to have adopted this programme.
The training modules are also available in:
- English (both the United Kingdom and Ireland)
- French and German (for Germany and Belgium as well as Austria and Switzerland)
- Dutch (for the Flemish speakers in Belgium)
MS Nurse Pro is constantly improving its reach, with further national launches scheduled in 2016-2017.
Accordingly, the programme will be launched in France, the Netherlands and Romania, among other countries.
The project coordinators speak about the future of MS Nurse Pro:
This project is led by the European Multiple Sclerosis Platform (EMSP) in collaboration with the International Organisation of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses (IOMSN) and Rehabilitation in MS (RIMS). Collectively, this group is known as the Multiple Sclerosis-Nurse Empowering EDucation (MS-NEED).
