Regulation has been a key priority for ICN for many years and ICN has built up considerable expertise in this area. Whereas ICN previously relied on workshops, informal meetings and special conference sessions to help nurses develop effective regulation of nursing worldwide, this network will be a permanent continually updated mechanism and a resource. ICN's inaugural network meeting took place in Vancouver in June 1997, and meets at al of ICN’s Conferences and Congresses. The bi-annual Regulation Bulletin
is sent network members electronically and posted on the ICN website.
