The Global Nursing Caucus invites you to attend their Global Health Nursing conference October 26th and 27th in Boston, Massachusetts. Students who area GNC members, attendees from low-resource countries and virtual attendees are welcome to register for free. This is always a wholly enjoyable event, whether you're able to attend in person or remotely. Please see additional information from GNC below and links/flyer attached. Hope to see you there!
DESCRIPTION AND PROGRAM:
Nurses around the world (both from the global north and global south) are increasingly invested in global health. Academic institutions, non-governmental organizations, professional societies, students, and individual nurses are creating transnational networks and offering new opportunities to get involved in global health. The models differ, but all aim to improve the health of populations and universal access to high quality, safe nursing/health care. This two-day conference will bring together nurses to share their experiences, perceptions, lessons learned and cultural sensitivities about the processes involved in respectful networking/collaborations. We will hear from a variety of nurse leaders from the United States of America (USA) as well as the global south. Unique to this conference is that we will use technology to bring in voices of those leaders currently working in the field; those who graciously open their doors to us, adjust their schedules to fit ours and interact with different outside cultures regularly to accommodate others. In addition, we will highlight a wide variety of nursing perspectives through our popular lightening talks and networking sessions.
- Examine the impact of North-South nursing collaborations on universal access to high quality, safe health care.
- Explore a variety of models for partnerships and networking as a strategy to illuminate and strengthen the voice and profile of nursing globally.
