INTRODUCTION: Globalization of scientific knowledge has been the hallmark of 21st century and nursing is no exception. As outcome-and research- based nursing practice is expected in most countries of the world, developing global network of nursing research is essential. Many global networks have been fostered through the international organizations such as ICN and WHO, however, only limited number of countries, universities, and individual scholars have been involved and their efforts oftentimes are episodic. PURPOSE: To address the importance of sustaining efforts in international nursing research and offer strategies. STRATEGIES FOR INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH ACTIVITIES (IRA): development of solid, collaborative relationship based on research expertise and interest area between scholars; commitment of time and resources at individual and institutional level; supportive policies at institutional and country levels; understanding and respect for differences in culture and language; focusing on creative ideas and capitalizing on the significance of research itself, rather than being occupied by cultural and language differences; and adjusting to each other’s work habits and communication styles. Creating a common knowledge data-base for nursing research worldwide would expedite the progress of IRA. Sharpening English language skills is necessary for international communication and this requires supportive policy at the college/institution and the country levels. EXPECTED OUTCOME AND IMPLICATION: Enhanced IRAs using above strategies would help sustain international collaborative activities and the knowledge generated will help nurses implement evidence-based primary health care practice, improve the care of people and promote world citizens' health. Sustaining international research efforts may be one key to the solutions of global nursing shortage including nursing faculty shortage.
