ICN advances nursing, nurses and health through its policies, partnerships, advocacy, leadership development, networks, campaigns, congresses and special projects.
Our ever-increasing networks and connections to people reinforce the importance of strong linkages with national, regional and international nursing and non-nursing organisations. Building positive relationships internationally helps position ICN, nurses and nursing for now and the future. Our work with the specialized agencies of the United Nations system, particularly with the World Health Organization, are important for nurses everywhere. In addition, we work closely with a range of international non-governmental organizations and other partners
