Join us for a unique virtual experience!

As the situation around the current pandemic still remains very uncertain, and we know that many of our members, partners and supporters are on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19 the IACRN Board and Conference Planning Committee has made the exciting decision to shift our annual to a virtual experience!

We always strive to put our members first, and making this decision now allows us the opportunity to put together an event with the same level of quality and content that our members have come to expect from us.

How Does it Work?

During the conference our state of the art virtual portal will take you to a virtual reality conference lobby where you can access plenary sessions, breakout presentations, live presenter Q&A and live chat with sponsors and exhibitors. There will also be a dedicated poster viewing lounge which can be accessed throughout the conference. Attendees can view the content during conference hours or on-demand after the conference at their own convenience. Conference content will be available to view on-demand until Sunday, October 25th, 5pm EST. We hope going virtual will allow as many people to attend as possible from all over the world.

Don't Miss Out!

The IACRN conference theme for 2020 will showcase the many and varied contributions that Clinical Research Nurses make to advancing health care globally.

This honor coincides with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale
