15th Congress

of Polish Nurses

Wroclaw | 21-23 May 2020

Due to the probable epidemiological threat of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, as well as on the basis of the order of the Rector of the Medical University of Wroclaw on the cancellation of all conferences, congresses and meetings at the University, the congress will be postponed to a later date. We will inform you about a specific date shortly.


Dear Sir/Madam,
Dear Colleagues

In 2020, designated by WHO as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, I am happy and proud to invite you to attend the 15th Congress of Polish Nurses, which will be held this time in Wroclaw.

Thanks to the commitment of the Scientific Committee and the kindness of many outstanding nurses from Poland and abroad, we have prepared a list of attractive panels and lectures, built around the leading theme of the Congress: “Advancement in nursing is the best investment in health”.

Main presentation and discussion themes will revolve around Advanced Nursing Practice and its impact on the spectacular development of care in various medical fields. During the Congress, we also plan sessions on the topic of coordinated care for patients suffering from chronic conditions, presentation of programs for further action in the field of nurses' and midwives' education and fascinating presentations on nursing-related passions.  

The Congress of the Polish Nursing Society organized in cooperation with the Wroclaw Medical University is not only an important scientific event but also an opportunity to meet other nurses and medical professionals. Aside from the undoubted scientific benefits, I am convinced that the beautiful places which Congress attendees will see, the diverse cultural offer and the opportunity to get to know the tourist attractions of Wroclaw will leave nothing but good memories.

Wishing you a wonderful experience during your participation in the Congress, I hope that you will attend this important event in large numbers.

President of the Management Board
of the Polish Nursing Society
