Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street
Abu Dhabi


The International Council of Nurses is pleased to announce the next ICN Congress to be held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, from 5-9 June 2021.

Hosted by the Emirates Nursing Association, this international gathering of thousands of nurses will explore many topics of interest to the nursing community and global health, and provide opportunities for nurses to build relationships and disseminate nursing and health-related knowledge. The Council of National Nursing Association Representatives, ICN’s global governing body, will convene from 2-5 June 2021. Congress participants who are members of ICN member associations will be able to observe global nursing leaders, identify the profession’s priorities and future directions.

In the light of the continuing global pandemic we are monitoring and considering closely the implications for our ICN Congress next year. We will of course communicate through all the usual channels to our NNAs and other stakeholders when there are any updates.


We are proud to announce the theme of the Congress - 

"Nursing the World Together"
