Student Assembly

Student Assembly


The biennial ICN Student Assembly is back this year to mobilize future nurses around the issues currently facing the nursing profession. Under the theme Nursing Students as the Next Generation of Health Equity and Social Justice Leaders, this Assembly will feature a number of expert speakers from a variety of backgrounds.

The workshops and presentations will provide food for thought on a variety of current burning issues, including the mental health of nurses; the role of nurses in climate change and planetary health; raising the voice of nurses from minority populations; the role of national nursing associations in low- and middle-income countries; and the importance of recognition of nurses by political actors.

We are excited that this Assembly, through the voices of the students who will be part of it, can contribute to nursing and global health policy-making and ultimately to the health and well-being of populations worldwide.

The Student Assembly will take place on 30 June 2023 and will be conveniently located on-site at the Palais de Congrès. The Assembly will be free of charge and open to undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate nursing students. Registration will be capped at 300 students, and a waitlist will be started thereafter.
