core steering group

The CSG engages with Subgroups (SG) though their Liaisons, who facilitate communication, meet regularly with SGs and support them to develop their aims and objectives which need to align to the Network and ICN.


The CSG will be an evolving and continually updated forum that will:

  • Identify issues early and monitor how they develop;
  • Follow trends;
  • Offer special expertise through creating a resource pool from network members;
  • Disseminate ICN's and others' work in the field;
  • Organise meetings and conferences.

Welcome from the chair

  I am delighted to welcome you to the ICN NP/APN Network and want to thank you for offering your time, energy, experience and commitment to the Network. We are proud to have a Network which is active in research, education, health policy, clinical practice, communications and conference planning. I am sure you will enjoy working within the Sub Group with members from across the globe.   Dr Melanie Rogers
