Following extensive discussions and deliberations on the theme and the sub themes, it was noted that the modern day nurse and the nursing profession need to change from some of the old ways in other to meet with modern day realities and expectations. Also it is important that nurses in Nigeria unite to speak with one voice and focus unanimously on a common destination for the betterment of the nursing profession.

The association should avail herself of the opportunities the social media offers by creating and maintaining social media handles which should be functional and informative e.g. twitter, Facebook, Linked-in and others.

Focus should be on advancement in nursing education and establishment of a National postgraduate college of nursing.
