Building Children's Nursing Conference

The biennial Building Children's Nursing for Africa (BCN) conference, hosted by the Child Nurse Practice Development Initiative, in collaboration with Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital, is a participative conference for nurses who work with children, newborn to adolescents, and their families, to consider and celebrate their contribution to excellence in care.

This conference stands as a clear example of the Initiative's ongoing dedication to the goal of Building strong and sustainable system capacity, in particular through the establishment of a dynamic community of child health nursing leaders, educators, researchers and practitioners across Africa.

The most recent conference was held in April 2019, themed 'Constructs of Care'. Hosted with a strong African theme and a designed to very deliberately facilitate collegial conversations, it was another great success. To read more about this conference click here.
