    On behalf of the 2023 ISONG World Congress Planning Committee, we invite you to join us at the 2023 ISONG World Congress. The Graduate Hotel will be the perfect setting to connect with genetics and nursing colleagues from around the world. 

    Nurses are called to transform healthcare, and genetic/genomic nurses will be at the forefront of that transformation. We look forward to exciting presentations by our keynote and plenary speakers and expert lecture, abstract, and poster presenters.

    The 2023 ISONG World Congress will provide the attendee the opportunity to:

      1. Discuss advances in genomic nursing research, education, practice, and policy settings.
      2. Incorporate the concepts of genomics in nursing scholarship to promote health equity.
      3. Identify the unique opportunities of nursing to integrate genomics advances into practice.

      Additionally, the Education Committee and the Congress Committee are excited to offer Pre-Congress Sessions again this year. These sessions will take place on Thursday, November 2, 2023.  This is a separate registration.

      The ISONG World Congress registration fee includes a continental breakfast each day, lunch on Friday and Saturday, the Poster Reception, and all breaks.
