Abstract

To commemorate the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale, the World Health Organization announced 2020 as the “International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.” Nursing is in the frontline of transformational care. The actions of nurses help bring positive changes to the world. Taiwan cannot stand outside of the global community. The Taiwan Nurses Association is also involved actively in international affairs. The expertise and enthusiasm of Taiwan’s nurses may be highlighted by attending and responding to various meetings, conferences, and global nursing events organized by the International Council of Nurses (ICN) such as the Council of National Nursing Association Representatives (CNR), ICN Congress, and Nursing Now campaign. This article shares important information and insights on the 2019 ICN CNR meeting and the ICN Congress to expand the international perspective of nurses and to inspire and explore the future development of the nursing profession in Taiwan.
