SAVE THE DATE: AUGUST 9th -14th, 2020
This conference will be held from August 9th -14th, 2020 at the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Conference Center & Suites Abuja, Nigeria. The overall objective of this conference is to draw attention to Nigerian Nurses and Midwives as vital stakeholders in the Nigerian healthcare system, to recognize their contributions to National Development, and acknowledge their individual and collective achievement. The program will bring together nurses with expertise in policy, research, leadership and practice from across the globe to share and discuss strategies for advancing effective support and systems of care for Sustainable Development Goals and Universal Health Coverage through nursing.
A healthy nation is made possible by the leading role of the nurses in that nation. Nigerian Nurses cannot play this role unless they are empowered. Empowerment is made possible by education, information and participation.
This conference will facilitate innovative exchange across systems, sectors, and countries to advance programs, services, and strategies in raising the profile of nursing in Nigeria. It will highlight the importance and need for: more well-educated nurses; removing barriers to nursing education and practice; and development of advanced practice nursing roles that are proving highly effective for expanding healthcare coverage.
