We would like to welcome you to the 2013 World Congress for
Psychiatric Nurses! We also would like to extend a warm welcome
to the City of Winnipeg, the Province of Manitoba and for some of
you, welcome to Canada!
The Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Canada (RPNC) is proud to
sponsor this sixth World Congress for Psychiatric Nurses where
knowledge, skills and information can be shared among those people
dedicated to working in the mental health field. This biennial
conference has grown into a huge success story and we hope you
will be able to join us from May 2-4 of 2013.
Our theme for this World Congress is "Diversity: The People, The
Places and The Practice". As Canada continues to grow and welcome
new practitioners in the field of psychiatric nursing, it has
become increasingly important to embrace and acknowledge the
differences in how we practice as Registered Psychiatric Nurses.
This theme celebrates the many diverse aspects of our profession
and the uniqueness each of us bring to practice.
Enjoy your stay in Winnipeg! The sixth World Congress for
Psychiatric Nurses promises to offer something for everyone.
Enjoy meeting new colleagues and reacquainting yourself with old
friends. Finally, be sure to enjoy the warm hospitality of the
people of "Friendly Manitoba".
