On the 30th October 2001, several national critical care nursing organisations were represented at a meeting of nurses held during the 8th World Congress on Intensive Care in Sydney, Australia. At this meeting they developed and endorsed a constitution to form the World Federation of Critical Care Nurses (WFCCN). WFCCN is registered in Australia as a Company Limited by Guarantee, and is managed by a Board of Directors, which is elected by the membership. The full Members of the WFCCN are referred to as the Council. Every year the Council meets, during a World Congress, at which time the Annual General Meeting is normally held.
There are currently two categories of professional membership (Full and Associate), and it is planned to introduce Individual membership in 2017. As well, WFCCN has a corporate partnership membership, which enables medical/nursing-related corporations with an interest in critical care nursing to join WFCCN as an official Corporate Partner.
For questions about The WFCCN Membership, please contact us.
Membership is open to formally registered critical care nursing organisations (CCNOs). An annual subscription fee is payable, which is based on the CCNO country’s wealth.

Formally registered CCNOs may also join as an Associate Member. Associate Members do not have voting rights and currently are not required to pay a subscription fee. In countries where there is an identifiable group of critical care nurses that is not formally registered e.g. a network, such groups may also apply for Associate Membership.

Individual Membership will be introduced in late 2017. An annual subscription fee will be payable.
