Dear friends, mentors and colleagues,
It is my great honor and privilege to invite you on behalf of the Federation of African Nursing Science Students Organisations' to the 1st International African Nursing Students Conference and Academic Research Symposium to be held from the 19th - 21st of December 2016 in Kigali, Rwanda.
As the Federation of African Nursing Science Students Organisations (FANSSO), our mission is to uphold the impact of the nursing discipline in society today through creating a platform where nursing students in nations across Africa can actively engage in the promotion of the highest level of nursing education, practice and research within the continent.
The conference to be held at the University of Rwanda, seeks to bring together nursing students from across Africa to be a part of developing the vision and structure of this organization, in so doing contributing to mapping the future of nursing students across the continent. We hope to have the conference be as representative as possible to encourage inclusive decision making towards election of the 1st International African Nursing Students Committee, and as such we seek the endorsement and backing of the international nursing community towards helping to shape the future of this young organization, encouraging nursing students from across Africa to register for the conference, and be a part of this global health movement and historic seminar.
It is our fervent belief that your support towards this initiative shall yield a massive boost towards the strengthening of healthcare systems in nations across Africa and solidifying nursing's impact and position at the centre of healthcare and development within societies across Africa. We look forward not only to your great response, but to reaching more and more students in nursing across the African Continent towards building among them global health leadership, effective partnership, innovative solutions and multi-disciplinary collaboration toward the improved health and well-being of both people in Africa and across the globe.
