The 1st Annual Worldwide Nursing Conference (WNC) will be held in beautiful and vibrant Singapore running July 8-9, 2013. Nursing practice is both a science and an art. It requires scientific skill yet demands a strong background in the social sciences and humanities. Nursing makes a significant contribution to the health maintenance, health promotion and well-being of individuals, local communities and populations.
Conference Theme: Health Disparities
The theme of the 2013 conference is health disparities. As a key part of the health workforce nurses are at the forefront of the provision of health care, and carry out their work in a global context of increasing social, economic and cultural inequalities that impact health. A major challenge for current and future nursing practice, education and management is to address health for all and work towards equity and access to health care.
The Annual Worldwide Nursing Conference (WNC) aims to explore advances in nursing practice, management and education in relation to health disparities as well as a breadth of other topics. Through networking and sharing, WNC will provide an opportunity for nursing practitioners and educators to exchange research evidence, models of best practice and innovative ideas.
The Conference Committee will ensure there is a program of leading topics with international expert speakers. Throughout the two days there will be opportunities to hear key presentations and seminars and participate in workshops focused on innovation in nursing research, practice, education and management.
The Conference Proceedings (Print ISSN: 2315-4330, E-Periodical ISSN: 2315-4349) will be indexed by EBSCO, CrossRef, ProQuest and will be submitted to Scopus, ScienceDirect and Cabell's Directories amongst others, where applicable.
