By attending the ICN Congress, you'll have the opportunity to earn up to 36 hours of continuing education credits recognized by both the ICN International Continuing Education Credits (ICNEC) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation. This accreditation demonstrates the Congress's commitment to providing a high-quality educational experience that meets rigorous standards for nursing professional development.

These CE Credits are only available for sessions attended during the event that are eligible. These are clearly indicated on the Scientific Program. You will receive a letter within one week after the Congress with the link to claim the credits. A short survey will need to be completed to demonstrate key learnings as well as provide suggestions on future improvements to Congress.
