Collaborate with Catholic Nurses from Around the World!

Every four years Catholic nurses from around the world come together for spiritual nourishment, education, professional collaboration, and enhanced global cooperation.

CICIAMS is the International Association of Catholic Nurses who collaborates with the Vatican in the mission of bringing together member nurses from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Pan American nations.

One of the member nations, NACN-USA, is proud to host this event. The last World Congress held in the USA was in 1990 in New York City.  All nurses (students included) front-liners, innovators, educators, researchers, and policy makers are welcome and encouraged to attend!
