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. Worldwide 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. Worldwide Nursing Conference (WNC) will provide an opportunity for nursing practitioners and educators to exchange research evidence, models of best practice and innovative ideas.

WNC 2018 will focus on "The Role of Nursing in Leading and Advancing Global Health" and the following 6 streams:

  • Transforming Lives through Nursing Education
  • Transforming Lives by using technology
  • Transforming Lives through quality clinical care
  • Understanding lived experience to transform lives
  • The role of Nursing research to transform lives
  • Nursing’s governance and management practices that transform lives
