The International Council of Nurses is continuing to plan for its ICN 2021 Congress, which will be held virtually for the first time. The Congress will take you on a unique journey of “Nursing Around the World”, with a traveling hub that moves across the globe over a three-day period from 2-4 November 2021.


We will soon be announcing more inspiring speakers to join nursing and healthcare advocate Her Royal Highness Princess Muna al-Hussein of Jordan, and former New Zealand Premier Helen Clark, who have already been confirmed.


ICN received 4,976 abstracts from 105 different countries by the extended March 15 deadline, with a 50-50 split between pre-recorded concurrent sessions and electronic poster presentations. Our panel of experts is still reviewing the submissions and applicants will be notified of their decisions in May. Successful applicants must register for their place at Congress by June 9.
