National Nursing Assessment Service Annual Conference 2016

The National Nursing Assessment Service is excited to be hosting its inaugural annual conference, October 18-19, 2016. This year’s theme is:

Emerging Canadian Healthcare Trends and its Impact on IEN Nursing Registration.

Internationally educated nurses (IENs) play an important role in Canada’s healthcare system. NNAS’s conference will provide a platform for thought leaders to share their views on emerging issues within the Canadian healthcare landscape, including issues within Canadian healthcare workplaces, that will have an impact on IEN registration. NNAS will also share with delegates the achievements that have been made to-date on the harmonization of the preliminary IEN registration pathway.  Some of our expert and thought-provoking speakers, panelists and moderators include Ms. Deanna Williams, Dr. David Benton (NCSBN), and St. Elizabeth Healthcare, to name a few. 

The conference provides an opportunity to dialogue, network and engage in knowledge exchange and transfer amongst a diverse set of delegates that will comprise Canadian nursing regulatory body leaders and staff, government (federal and provincial), Canadian and international academia, international nursing regulatory bodies, IENs and other partners interested in IEN registration and international nursing.
