ICN is delighted to welcome you to the 2025 ICN Congress to be held in Helsinki, Finland, 9-13 June 2025! This international gathering of thousands of nurses will explore the theme: Nursing Power to Change the World!

Following in the footsteps of the ICN Congress in Montreal in 2023, the Helsinki Congress will provide opportunities for nurses to build relationships and to disseminate nursing knowledge and leadership across specialties, cultures and countries. Delegates will be able to hear and learn from expert speakers, governmental leaders, and influential trail-blazers!

Organized in collaboration with the Finnish Nurses Association (FNA), this will be ICN’s 30th Congress. It also marks 100 years since the Finnish Nurses Association was founded and the ICN Congress was last held in Finland! The FNA is the proud co-host of the event once again, and welcomes you to the land of the Midnight Sun. The following video will take you on a short walk-through of the beautiful host city of Helsinki and the wonderful country of Finland. Maybe, during your stay, you’ll experience a bit of midsummer magic, too, to complement your professional congress experience!

So, come and join us for these celebrations and help show how nursing has the power to change the world!
