Drs. June Horowitz and Jane Lassetter,
co-chairs of the IFNA Conference Committee, and Debbie Zaparoni, IFNA Conference Manager, traveled to Pamplona, Spain in early March for a site visit to plan for IFNC13 to be held June 14-17, 2017. They were graciously hosted by Dr. Cristina Garcí­a-Vivar and Jorge Aubá Guedea and the School of Nursing, Universidad de Navarra. IFNA President Carole Robinson, who was at the Universidad of Navarra for a sabbatical, also joined them for some of the site visits. They toured the conference venues on campus, notably the Museum of Modern Art where the pre-conference workshops and general sessions will be held, and the nearby Amigos Building where concurrent sessions will be held. They were thrilled with the beautiful vistas and excellent facilities. Pamplona and the Universidad de Navarra will be the perfect location for the upcoming IFNC13.
