4th Annual GSTF Worldwide Nursing Conference (WNC) 2016 Singapore

  • Conference Call
  • The Global Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Forum (GSTF) is invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in the 4th Annual World­wide Nurs­ing Con­fer­ence (WNC) 2016 tak­ing place in Sin­ga­pore on July 1819, 2016 at the Fort Can­ning Hotel.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    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.

    WNC 2015 pro­vided a forum and oppor­tu­nity for del­e­gates from 60 indi­vid­ual uni­ver­si­ties and 22 coun­tries to share their research, prac­tice, and edu­ca­tional ini­tia­tives with an inter­na­tional audience.

    4th Annual WNC for 2016 will focus on “The Role of Nurs­ing in Lead­ing and Advanc­ing Global Health”.
