We welcome your participation and support for the Congress and throughout the year as we work together to improve health and support access to quality nursing care for all. The designation of 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, and the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic have shone a spotlight on the nursing profession. Never have ICN and its over 130 national nurses associations, representing the 27 million nurses worldwide, been so visible and so influential. The World Health Organization has now designated 2021 as the International Year of the Health and Care Worker, a further opportunity for nurses to be recognised for their invaluable work.
As the world’s first and widest reaching international organisation for health professionals, ICN’s Congresses bring together decision makers, chief nursing officers, nurse managers, clinical specialists, educators, nurse practitioners, CEOs, governmental representatives, policy makers, students and many more. Their areas of practice cover the full spectrum: emergency services, community care, clinics and hospitals, educational institutions, nursing homes, and so on.In partnership with the Emirates Nursing Association, the ICN 2021 Virtual Congress (ICN 2021) promises to be a unique and exciting event! To be held virtually 2-4 November 2021, ICN 2021 will bring together over 6,000 nurses leaders and health experts from across the globe to explore key topics of importance to nursing and health. Under the theme “Nursing Around the World”, ICN 2021 will cover the latest trends in nursing and health, such as artificial intelligence, mobile technology, nurse-led initiatives, nurse prescribing and advanced nursing practice, as well as important issues such as gender and equality. We will also be analysing the impact COVID-19 has had on nursing and other frontline health professions, what we have learned and how the profession will face up to the challenges of the future.
