Words from the President


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my great honor to be elected as the President of the Hong Kong Association of Renal Nurses (HKARN) with effective from 10th September 2023.  I would like to thank you for all your support and this serves a great encouragement in my career.  I am pleased to have this valuable chance to contribute my expertise and experience to the development of renal nursing in Hong Kong. 

On behalf of the HKARN, I would like to sincerely thank all the former presidents for their visionary leadership and our dearest members, honorary advisors, partners and sponsors for all their long-standing support in the past.

HKARN has been established as a non-profit making professional organization since 21st April 2007 by a group of nurses practicing in renal care and now in its 17 years of service.  Our Full membership included members practicing in renal care, or in the management field; teaching or research base of renal service.  HKARN also welcome members from other health care professionals as our Associate members who do not meet the entry requirements for being a full member.  As reported in the AGM on 10th September 2023, we have 719 members to join us. 

As the president, I am committed to lead HKARN to strive for renal nursing practice advancement and better patient outcomes enhancement. 

With the removal of barriers and restrictions imposed by COVID pandemic and the resumption of normalcy, the HKARN has resumed its routines and educational activities.  We will continuously provide more training opportunities for renal nurses both locally and overseas.  Additionally, there is also an increasing need for nephrology nursing care in the context of aging population in Hong Kong. I believe that with our expertise, we can work out to promote kidney health and to provide health education to the public in Hong Kong.



In order to improve our work, members’ feedback and encouragement are much appreciated. I would like to invite you to visit our homepage and contact us at the email address for any issues related to us:
