The second edition of the Annual Worldwide Nursing Conference (WNC) 2014 – organised by the Global Science and Technology Forum (GSTF) – will be held June 23 – 24, 2014 in Singapore at the Hotel Fort Canning.
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. 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. Nursing Conference aims to explore advances in nursing practice, management and education in relation to health disparities as well as a breadth of other topics. WNC will provide an opportunity for nursing practitioners and educators to exchange research evidence, models of best practice and innovative ideas.
Best Paper Awards and Best Student Paper Awards will be conferred at the conference (in order to qualify for the award, the paper must be presented at the conference).
Panel Proposals are invited for submission to the WNC 2014. A minimum of three papers centering on a specific topic will be accepted for submission under Panel CaNtegory.
