International Home Care Nurses Organization

Our mission is to establish a vibrant worldwide network of nurses who promote excellence in providing optimal health and well-being to patients living in their homes.

The International Home Care Nurses Organization (IHCNO) seeks to advance home healthcare nursing around the world by providing a platform where nurses can support and learn from one another. We define “home healthcare nurses” as nurses who provide care to patients in their homes. Home health nursing’s patients include those with acute or chronic health problems, no matter how young or old. Patients include those receiving hospital-at-home, skilled, private duty and palliative services, and everything in between. We recognize that home health nursing is a specialized area of nursing practice and we seek to support nurses in home healthcare clinical practice, education and research.
