International Nursing Research Congress Huge Success


Beta Nu Delta Nursing Society together with the College of Nursing of the Visayas State University, the Philippine Nurses Association Region 8, Department of Health Region 8 and the National League of Philippine Government Nurses welcomed over 200 participants at the 1st International Nursing Research Congress, held 22nd  August 2015 at the Center for Continuing Education, Visayas State University, Baybay City, Leyte.

This was the first time that an international nursing event was hosted in Region 8 – and it was an outstanding success!

The theme of the Congress 2015 was ‘Global Paradigm Shift in Health, Health Care Providers and Health Care Systems’ and included a keynote (Assoc.Prof Rose Constantino, RN, Ph.D, JD, FAAN FACFE of the University of Pittsburgh), oral abstract presentations, research awards, symposia, poster presentation, and networking receptions.

The organizers received excellent feedback from delegates both onsite and after the event.

The convenors looks forward to continued success with the 2016 Congress.  Look forward to seeing you there!
