Aragonese Community Nursing Association


The Aragonese Community Nursing Association (AECA) is a group of nursing professionals working in the field of Family and Community Health Nursing in Aragón. We are federated and we are part of FAECAP (Federation of Associations of Community Nursing and Primary Care) which is a statewide association.


The Association aims to group all the professionals of Nursing in Aragon, with concerns to promote a circle with its own identity, to be heard in all forums where community nursing and Primary Care plays an important role

To achieve this goal, we work and collaborate with the different associations in the field of health, establishing communication channels with the health administration and with all the professionals that support our professional concerns.

The Association is necessary to create a state of opinion regarding our collective is to go in defense and promotion of a better Public Health.

Because we need the voice of Nursing Primary Care, is heard in the various committees and scientific meetings of our region, to which, without professional scientific association, we have no access, and we need to establish links with the rest from Spain and even from Europe.

Because we think that improvements in the quality of care go through improvements in our training and professional recognition.

We want to tell you because we believe and understand that this partnership must bring together all the group of primary care nurses Aragon because:

  • We work in a very specific field.
  • The objectives are the same and we have similar problems.
  • A reform is pending that will affect us all in the same way.
  • To be present and participate, in the development of the professional career.
  • The specialty of Community Nursing is to be developed.
  • Research projects in Primary Care Nursing should be strengthened.
  • The stagnation of protocols forces us to work on them and expand them.
  • We must develop new fields of action and collaboration with other members of the EAP.
  • To inform the population about the portfolio of Nursing services in Primary Care.
  • Develop the care model based on the UBA (Basic Care Unit composed of doctor and nurse).
