This new interactive timeline detailing the 120-year history of the International Council of Nurses has been launched on the eve of the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.
The online timeline lead viewers on an interactive journey through the 12 decades of ICN, from its founding on 1 July 1899 during the women’s suffrage movement through the highs and lows, successes and challenges of the last 120 years, culminating in a look towards the future of ICN and nursing.
Research for the exhibition was carried out by Professor Marie Carney (read more), Dean Emeritus and postdoctoral research fellow at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery.
The 120th timeline was originally presented as an exhibition at the ICN Congress in Singapore and has been adapted and expanded for on-line viewing. The timeline contains photos, audio narratives and stories taken from Professor Carney's extensive research. ICN is grateful to her for this incredible undertaking and hopes that users will learn from ICN's past to amke the most of 2020 and beyond!
