Nurses are dedicated to the health and well-being of all individuals. Caring requires nurses to examine routine procedures and determine how they might be improved. The amount of information produced by rigorous nursing research improves nursing knowledge and practice, contributes towards development and shaping of health care policies as well as the advancement of global healthcare. As patients' needs become more complicated and healthcare systems become more diverse, nurses implement evidence-based care by combining their own nursing research, professional experience, and patient's preferences. Consequently, the purpose of the current conference is to disseminate up-to-date information on nursing research and its contributions towards improving global health.
