Date of Conference: 
Saturday, May 27, 2017 - Thursday, June 1, 2017

Welcome to the 2017 ICN Congress in Barcelona, Spain!

This international gathering of thousands of nurses will explore nurses’ leading role in the transformation of care, with a particular focus on universal health coverage, the Sustainable Development Goals and human resources for health. The Congress will provide opportunities for nurses to build relationships and to disseminate nursing knowledge and leadership across specialties, cultures and countries. The three ICN pillars – Professional Practice, Regulation and Socio-Economic Welfare – will frame the scientific programme and the dynamic exchange of experiences and expertise

The main objectives of the Congress are:

  • To demonstrate and advance the nursing contribution to informed and sustainable health policies.
  • To support nursing’s contribution to evidence-based healthcare and to encourage problem-solving approaches to health priority needs.
  • To provide opportunities for an in-depth exchange of experience and expertise within and beyond the international nursing community.
