The WFCCN is an international federation comprised of national critical care nursing associations from over 40 countries. It was founded in 2000 and its constitution was first approved in October 2001. The most recent revision was published in April 2016. The constitution outlines the purpose, philosophy and objectives of WFCCN.

The WFCCN is keen to develop its membership, and all interested national critical care
nursing associations are invited to join.
