CCDEN meeting

Critical Care Doctoral Educated Nurses = CCDEN
The Critical Care Doctoral European Nurses group was created in 2015 in Valencia. Our objective is establishing a network of critical care nursing researchers. Since then, the group has engaged over 40 members from all over Europe. Members either hold a PhD degree or are current doctoral students. The group also welcomes nurses who have completed other Doctoral programmes in a European country (e.g. DPhil; DNS; Professional Doctorate or similar).
We plan to form working groups aligned to specific research interests enabling dynamic communication. If you hold a PhD or are currently a PhD student and are interested in joining this group, please attend the CCDEN meeting on Friday, 2 September at 11:00 hrs.

Accreditation for Dutch nurses will be applied for.

A personal Certificate of Attendance stating the number of contact hours will be made available to all delegates shortly after the Congress.
