CARE Centre shared insights in supporting IENs at the largest international nursing conference in the world – International Council of Nurses Congress (ICN)

The ICN, which brings together nurses from around the world to share best practices, research and knowledge, was held in Montreal, July 1-5, 2023, and featured the theme “Nurses Together: A Force for Global Health.”

CARE Centre was privileged to contribute to the global nursing conversation and share our expertise in supporting IENs by conducting one oral presentation and three e-posters in collaboration with our partners in our pre and post-arrival services.

The ICN provided our team with the opportunity to connect and network with nurses, health leaders and national nursing associations from around the world. We also learned and shared best practices in integrating IENs and issues confronting nursing from a global perspective. This once-in-a-lifetime experience equipped us with new knowledge in supporting our clients.
