Key dates

Update per 19 November 2021:

Congress postponed from March to 31 August-3 September 2022

At the time the Congress date in March 2022 was chosen, we had hoped that the Covid-19 pandemic would have eased by now. Unfortunately the Covid-19 virus continues to firmly holds us in our grip, putting an immense pressure on frontline nurses. It remains highly uncertain that the situation will have improved considerably in March, and many delegates may not be able to travel to Utrecht to attend the Congress at that time. Therefore, EfCCNa has made the difficult decision of postponing the Congress once more, to warmer and hopefully better days. We hope these new dates suit you and look forward to welcoming you in Utrecht in August.
