The biennial ICN Student Assembly mobilised 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 featured a number of expert speakers from a variety of backgrounds.
The workshops and presentations provided 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 proud that this Assembly, through the voices of the students who participated, contributed to nursing and global health policy-making and ultimately to the health and well-being of populations worldwide.
The Student Assembly took place on 30 June 2023 on-site at the Palais de Congrès.
