CHNC - National Nurses CHNC - National Nurses


The Community Health Nurses of Canada are excited to announce the Call for Abstracts for CHNC2020: Community Health Nursing NOW!, our national Community Health Nursing conference.  

Our goal is to advance Community Health Nursing in Canada and you are invited to join a dynamic group of nurses from across Canada who will come together and share their community health knowledge in 2020, named Year of the Nurse and Midwife by the World Health Organization in honour of Florence Nightingale.  

The CHNC2020 conference theme reflects Nursing Now, an initiative of the International Council of Nurses and the World Health Organization to improve health by raising the profile of nursing, with the goal of tackling 21st century health challenges. Our theme also reflects our new and revised 2019 Canadian Community Health Nursing Standards of Practice.  

Our conferences bring together individuals who have an interest in Community Health Nursing from practice, research, administration, policy and education. Networking opportunities offer a forum to explore issues of mutual concern as well as exchange knowledge, share evidence and ideas, and generate solutions. 

Abstracts submission is now closed. 

Thank you to all who submitted an abstract for the CHNC2020: Community Health Nursing NOW!

We will be in contact shortly to confirm the selected abstracts into the conference programming.



Abstract submissions are encouraged from nurses and interprofessional collaborators in all domains of community health nursing: practice, administration, education,  research and policy. Student submissions are strongly encouraged!
