9th Nursing Conference

There has never been a more exciting time to be a nurse. Not only is the number of clinical technologies designed to help make nursing easier and improve patient care constantly increasing, but the opportunities for growth as a nurse are increasing as well. To stay ahead of the game, nurses must stay up to date with the latest trends as well as potential future healthcare developments.

The 2020 Nursing Conference will provide a vital opportunity for the nursing community to consider the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead and the changing landscape of the nursing profession. It will give updates on the latest developments including the upcoming changes to the nursing education curriculum; new job roles within the field; nurse-led initiatives to solve clinical issues and the impact of digital technology on nursing.
