It is a great honor for me to extend this opportunity to welcome all of you to
International Nursing Conference 2015. This conference is organized by STIKES
Hang Tuah Surabaya with a theme “Complementary nursing Issues and Updates
in 2015”. This is the first time for STIKES Hang TuahSurabaya to hold an
International nursing Conference, and I do believe we may have other conferences
that contribute to the development of nursing sciences.
This conference is timely and relevant in light of challenges we are facing
in the next years ahead. It is to be noted that the ASEAN Economic Community
will be due on the December 31st, 2015, allowing seven professions including
nursing practitioners to work and practice across ASEAN countries, although
further preparations under Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRA) are still
On behalf of the institution STIKES Hang Tuah Surabaya, I would like to
express my highest appreciation to the committee, who organized this
International Nursing Conference 2015. It is my pleasure to warmly welcome all
of you to this event, and also cordially welcome all overseas speakers to share
their knowledge and experiences to all participants.
Eventually, I am confident that with the preparation and cooperation of all
participants, the presence of distinguished guest speakers, the first international
Nursing conference 2015 will be of great success.
Please enjoy your stay in Surabaya and wish you a wonderful time and valuable
experiences from this event. Once again, It is our sincere thanks to all of you for
taking time to join us.
Wiwiek Liestyaningrum, M.Kep
The Head of STIKES Hang Tuah Surabaya
