The Student Assembly of the International Council of Nurses Convention 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 and the populations they serve, the role of nurses in climate change and planetary health, the importance of indigenous nursing voices, the health services access in low- and middle-income countries, and the lack of recognition of the work 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 wellbeing of populations worldwide. We look forward to hearing the discussion that is to follow.
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. Information on time and how to register will be provided closer to the date of the event.”
