Welcome to the 11th International Council of Nurses' NP/APN Network Conference

Envisioning Advanced Practice Nursing Beyond 2020: Wider Reach, Bigger Impact

August 29 – September 1, 2021

It is with great excitement that we announce that the ICN NP/APN Network Conference (NPAPN 2021) will be presented as a fully virtual conference. We believe this is the safest approach for the well-being of our global audience and we are excited that a virtual event makes it possible to broaden the learning opportunities and engagement with the nursing and health community.

The conference is one of the largest international meetings on advanced practice nursing and networking is a cornerstone. Attendees will be able to partake in interactive and engaging sessions and networking functions, all while connecting from the comfort and safety of their home or office.

We will bring together advanced practice nurses such as nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, nurse midwives, and nurse consultants, along with researchers, educators, administrators, policymakers and students from around the globe.

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. The World Health Organization has now designated 2021 as the International Year of the Health and Care Worker, a further opportunity for the nursing profession to be recognized for their invaluable work.

Join this international virtual gathering for four days of knowledge transfer, lively discussions and networking.

Continuing Nursing Education Credits

Approval for awarding International Continuing Nursing Education Credits (ICNECs) is currently being sought from the International Council of Nurses. More information will be made available soon.
