Judith Shamian: New ICN President

On May 19 it was announced that Judith Shamian, past president of CNA, has been elected president of the International Council of Nurses (ICN). Judith brings decades of leadership experience to ICN’s helm to unite the nursing profession and harness its collective power to improve global health. Over the years, Canadian nurses have held a wide range of leadership roles at ICN, but it has been 40 years since the last Canadian president.
