Welcome to the website of the European Doctoral Conference in Nursing Science

The European Doctoral Conference in Nursing Science (EDCNS) is an international nursing conference for PhD students. The conference is organised alternately by PhD students from Maastricht University and the Medical University of Graz in cooperation with the Bern University of Applied Science.

The conference provides the opportunity for PhD students to:

  • meet and build contacts with colleagues all over Europe
  • give a presentation about a part of their thesis
  • share experiences and information in the area of nursing research
  • learn what is currently happening in nursing science in Europe
  • meet the profs!

Professors and other nursing- or faculty staff are welcome to join the audience. About 80 people from a variety of European countries attend the conference each year. On this website you can find abstracts of presentations, handouts of workshops/lectures, and pictures that were made during the conferences.
