The biggest International Congress for Nursing Informatics is coming to Montreal, Canada, and the Executive Board of Directors of the Canadian Nursing Informatics Association are getting excited! We hope that all of our current and future members are as well! Please start thinking about attending and possibly submitting a paper for the Congress.

What is NI 2012?

NI 2012 is the 11th International Congress on Nursing Informatics which will be held in Montreal, Canada, on June 23 – 27, 2012.
“The Congress provides a forum for nurses and other health care professionals to inform, study, evaluate, innovate, and create a climate within which they can enlarge upon their professional goals.

In order to accomplish this purpose, the objectives are:

  • To provide a mechanism for generating and sharing information.
  • To examine the impact on nursing of information technology in the areas of clinical practice, education, administration, and research, and health policy.
  • To provide an update on trends, developments, and innovations in information and communication technologies (ICT) in nursing and health care.
  • To determine the priorities for nursing uses of information science.
  • To generate future directions in relation to nurses’ use of ICT.” (NI 2012 website: Objectives)
