THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL NURSING CONGRESS OF ARMENIA, which brings Nursing Transition to the forefront. Our program theme is Nursing: Transition from profession to professional practice. Nurses are a driving force for improving access and quality of healthcare: nursing leadership on a global scale is called upon to lead service change, quality improvement, patient safety, education and research. Creating an evidence-based profession requires greater emphasis on best practices, innovation and discovery. Nurses need to have the necessary skills, knowledge and abilities to meet the demand for quality healthcare in a rapidly changing environment. Empowered professionals can manage the care that they deliver.
The congress offers opportunities for nurses around the globe to come together and share nursing excellence, education, experience and evidence-based practice, resulting in information sharing, communication, and discussion of key issues impacting the profession and practice.
