Dear {Title} Osborne:

I am very pleased to welcome you to the ICN International Student Nurse Network. The Student Network is open to any current student nurses, potential student nurses as well as interested others such as educators, regulators, and health planners. It is not necessary to belong to any professional organization to become a member of ICN Student Network.

The aim of the ICN Student Network is to:

Create an international network of individual nursing students that exists based upon the values of inclusiveness, diversity, equity, accountability and collegial communication which will serve to collaboratively advance the international nursing agenda in the interest of the public.

With the following specific objectives:

* Provide a forum for nursing students throughout the world to discuss topics related to individual and community health, education and science and to formulate policies from such discussions;

* Promote and facilitate professional and scientific exchanges and extracurricular training for nursing students;

* Link nursing students and international health organizations and encourage co-operation between them for the ultimate benefit of society;

* Recognize the international responsibility of nursing students to foster and advocate for a social justice agenda.

These are important and ambitious objectives and we will need your help in order meet them. We currently exploring new ways in which nursing students, at all levels of education, can participate in ICN Student Network and help this Network to meet these objectives.

ICN also provides a Nursing Students Bulletin Board on our web site to encourage Network members to raise issues and share information with nursing colleagues across the world. Such opportunities for sharing ideas and issues are becoming increasingly important as a result of trends such as the significant increase in nurse mobility and the ongoing development of telenursing.

We hope that you will be an active member of the Student Nurse Network and that you will benefit from the sharing of experience and expertise.

Yours sincerely,

Jean Barry
