Introduction to Danish Nurses Organization

We are pleased to welcome you to the English website of DNO. DNOs work takes its starting point in the vision and the five position papers, which is approved by the DNO Congress. We have framed our vision below:

“We move boundaries – in the organization, profession and society".

This is the main factors in all DNOs activities – from everyday lives of members in the workplace to the top executive. This vision is the starting point, which is based on the life and democracy of the organization, nurses' salary, working conditions and the nursing profession. We focus on health political issues, development and research in nursing, and cooperation with other organizations, national and across International borders. 

We strive towards better conditions to nurses salary that reflects the profession's high value to society and to professional nursing quality. Furthermore, we participate actively in debates about health policies.
