The NETNEP series of conferences are designed to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experience of nursing, midwifery and healthcare education worldwide. NETNEP 2020 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.
