          # For enhanced health reporting support, uncomment this block:

          #if ($time_iso8601 ~ "^(\d{4})-(\d{2})-(\d{2})T(\d{2})") {
          #    set $year $1;
          #    set $month $2;
          #    set $day $3;
          #    set $hour $4;
          #access_log /var/log/nginx/healthd/application.log.$year-$month-$day-$hour healthd;
          #access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log  main;
          location / {
              proxy_pass  http://nodejs;
              proxy_set_header   Connection "";
              proxy_http_version 1.1;
              proxy_set_header        Host            $host;
              proxy_set_header        X-Real-IP       $remote_addr;
              proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
              proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Proto https;

The above is if you are deploying your AWS using NGINX proxy. Please note that you will need your certificate as well and for that please refer to this document on AWS:
