Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding the "6th National 3rd International Transcultural Nursing Congress" online on 21-22 December 2021, in cooperation with Anadolu Health Center and "Transcultural Nursing Association (Kültürlerarası Hemşirelik Derneği )". The congress will be hosted by a hospital for the first time, with a plan to bring you many new and different topics in the field of transcultural nursing with a multidisciplinary, international, and practical approach. We will be honored to see academicians, clinicians, executive nurses, as well as students and all of our colleagues from other disciplines who contribute to this field, who are interested in and work on this subject at our congress.

We are planning to raise the awareness of all participants by bringing together national and international experts who have deepened and gained experience in the main themes we have determined. The congress includes the concept of "Interreligious nursing", which will be discussed for the first time in Turkey. We planned five different panels on "Cultural approach to different religions", "Cultural approach in health tourism", "Cultural approach to immigration, immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees", "Current Intercultural Approach in Nursing" and " "Transcultural approaches in nursing in different countries". We invited speakers from ten different countries on four continents to our panels.

We look forward to meeting with you, to include the work of our colleagues who are interested in the subject, and to discuss developments in the field of transcultural nursing at the national and international level and to share with you an announcement that was late due to the pandemic. We hope to share more detailed information about the congress, where all papers will be accepted as oral presentations, on the congress web page and the "Transcultural Nursing Association" page as soon as possible.
