Previous RCN research conferences

The RCN is committed to growing the nursing knowledge base by proactively collecting, storing and preserving physical and digital content.

The annual international nursing research conference has been a longstanding event on the RCN calendar, aiming to:

  • bring together researchers from diverse clinical and academic settings from around the world to participate in critical debate
  • promote and advance a body of knowledge with relevance to nursing
  • facilitate sharing and collaboration between health care researchers

This webpage is a repository of programmes and book of abstracts from previous research conferences. Where available, we also provide a link to keynote videos.
