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 18 – 19, 2016 at the Fort Canning Hotel.
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.
