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 2016 provided a forum and oppotunity for delegates from 44 individual universites and more than 20 countries to share their research, practice, and educational initiative with an international audience.
WNC 2017 will focus on "The Role of Nursing in Leading and Advancing Global Health" and the following 6 streams:
