President’s message

Welcome to the homepage of the Korean Society of Adult Nursing (KSAN)!


Dear members of the Korean Society for Adult Nursing,
I'm Sun-kyung Hwang, the 25th president of the Korean Society for Adult Nursing.

Last year was a very meaningful year to mark the 50th anniversary of our society's foundation. Based on this half-century history, we would like to move toward a "new 50 years for future nursing" with a new mindset starting from 2022. We want to realize Vision 2030 as a sustainable strategy to become a world-class society leading the education, research, and practice of adult nursing.

First, our society will strive to explore the future curriculum for the aspect of the next generation of academics and support academic activities for nurturing nursing scholars. In addition, it will be necessary to develop various teaching methods and strengthen the capacity of instructors to reflect the needs of educational consumers with the development of new science and technology.

Second, we will make efforts to hold academic conferences and seminars to enhance the excellence of adult nursing, revitalize mentoring programs for emerging researchers, and improve the quality of KJAN and SCI registration.

Third, we will seek various ways to improve the network of expert organizations and improve evidence-based practice.

In addition, our society encourages the activities of the 7 branches and aims to contribute to the development of the field of nursing by creating synergy effects through balanced development.

I would like to express my gratitude to the executives who have led the society so far and to the members who have participated in the society activities. We ask for your active participation and interest in the future, and we look forward to growing and developing together.

Thank you.

President
Korean Society of Adult Nursing
