Belfast 2016 Programme
We are delighted to announce the 2016 programme for Nursing in Practice Belfast, which will be taking place on the 10th March at the Ramada Plaza in Belfast. New for this year, the programme features a range of expert speakers in their field, examples of evidence based practice to help you improve your patient outcomes and a fresh array of clinical seminars which are relevant to your role.
