The ICN 26th Quadrennial Congress will showcase the key role nursing plays in equity and access to healthcare.  The Congress will permit access to, and dissemination of, nursing knowledge and leadership across specialities, cultures and countries.  The three ICN pillars - professional practice, regulation and socio-economic welfare - will frame the Congress sessions and programmes.

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.
