The ICN eHealth Programme encompasses:

  • the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP®), which provides an international standard to facilitate the description and comparison of nursing practice locally, regionally, nationally and internationally;
  • the ICN Telenursing Network which aims to involve and support nurses in the development and use of telehealth technologies; and
  • the Connecting Nurses initiative which provides an online forum for nurses worldwide to share ideas, advice and innovations.

The goals of the Programme are to support eHealth practice, to be recognized as an authority on eHealth, and to be positioned centrally in the eHealth Community. With policies and strategies applicable throughout the ICN pillars and programmes, the ICN eHealth programme seeks to advance nurses' knowledge of and involvement in eHealth worldwide.
