NANDA International Conference

Announcing the 2018 NANDA International Conference

Nursing Diagnosis & Knowledge Development: New Beginnings

Boston College Connell School of Nursing
Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts (USA)
June 13-15, 2018

It is with great excitement that we announce the upcoming 2018 NANDA International Conference, which will be co-sponsored by our partner, the Boston College Connell School of Nursing. Conference dates are June 13-15, 2018. This conference will provide us with a platform to discuss the future of nursing diagnosis and knowledge development, and to describe our exciting new partnership with Boston College and what that means for the future of the NANDA-I association, and nursing diagnosis development and refinement. We are also very pleased to announce that we will officially open the NANDA-I/Boston College joint program: The Marjory Gordon, Ph.D., R.N. FAAN Program for Clinical Reasoning and Knowledge Development, during the conference.

Complete details on the conference will be arriving in your inboxes, posted on the NANDA-I Facebook page, and on the NANDA-I and Boston College websites early in 2018. However, we can share that we will have preconference sessions the morning of June 13, which will include nursing diagnosis development and use (beginning and advanced workshops), implementation of NANDA-I in clinical practice, and, implementation of NANDA-I in educational settings. The format for the conference will provide significant opportunities for structured dialogue between the leaders of NANDA-I and The Marjory Gordon, PhD, RN, FAAN Program for Clinical Reasoning and Knowledge Development and conference participants.

As two Boston College alumni, and one Boston College faculty member, we are especially honored to “welcome you home” to our college, and we hope you will find the campus as beautiful, welcoming, and stimulating as we have since we first set foot on campus many years ago. We believe the opportunity to attend the conference, and stay at the on-campus lodging facilities, will provide all participants with a truly wonderful experience of learning, discussing, and socializing with members of the knowledge development community.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston in June!
