8th International Nurse Education Conference

3-6 April 2022 | Sitges, near Barcelona, Spain


We have made the very difficult decision to cancel NETNEP 2020 that was scheduled for 6-9 December 2020, in Sitges, Spain. Much thought has gone into this decision but as the pandemic continues to create so much uncertainty with enormous impacts on work pressures, travel, and funding we think the decision is sensible and almost inevitable.

We are, however, delighted to announce that NETNEP 2022 will be held from Sunday 3 – Wednesday 6 April 2022 in the same location in the beautiful city of Sitges, Spain.

We are grateful to all submitting authors, registered delegates, keynote speakers, review panellists, session chairs, sponsors and exhibitors for their support of the 2020 conference, and we hope, like us, NETNEP 2022 gives you something to look forward to in these challenging times.

In order to ensure that the 2022 conference programme is as current as possible, we will soon launch a brand new call for abstracts and look forward to receiving your contributions ahead of the submission deadline in 2021.

Stay safe and continue with your inspirational work no matter where you are.

Kind regards,

Karen Holland, Amanda Kenny & Mary Sidebotham

The NETNEP series of conferences are designed to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experience of nursing, midwifery and healthcare education worldwide. NETNEP 2022 will continue this philosophy by encouraging the sharing of research and practice of nursing, midwifery and healthcare education as it impacts on the learning experience of students and qualified practitioners and the health and social care needs, and safety, of the individuals and communities it serves worldwide.

There will be a large number of presentations throughout the three day event, including keynote presentations and contributed oral and poster presentations - including the Rapid5 short oral communications - giving delegates the opportunity to hear not only the latest research or innovation in education in a myriad of different contexts but also to participate fully in an interactive programme.

The conference experience is for anyone involved in the delivery, development and organisation of nursing, midwifery and healthcare education, as well as those who actively engage in participating in educational programmes. The conference particularly welcomes contributions from faculty, nursing and midwifery educationalists, academic administrators, senior education managers, practitioners, researchers and students.
