Background. Shortages in the nursing workforce are becoming a significant problem in the international community. The presentation will provide information and follow-up from the first-ever meeting (October 2001) of chief nursing officers from ministries of health, national nursing association presidents and human resources experts that examined the critical nursing workforce shortage that is facing the world. 61 nations were represented. This was a unique forum in which the workforce researchers presented findings (e.g., migration trends, and distribution of nurses), examined methods to assist nursing leaders and human resources experts examine data needs (e.g., population trends and health indexes), and policy implications (e.g., recruitment of nursing students) of global nursing workforce trends. Session objectives and focus: (1) identify global nursing workforce issues and the link between empirical data and current approaches, and (2) describe the creation and implementation of innovative international nursing partnerships that relate both to individual countries and the world. The presentation will focus on variation in national and regional approaches in methodology, data collection, analytical techniques, and ability to form evidence-based policy recommendations. International leaders outlined potential strategies for solving the workforce crisis and delegates devised strategic plans specific to their own workforce issues, including nursing representation on health policy committees, standardizing nursing education, developing programs to meet national health needs and defining parameters for national workforce databases. Two-year post conference examples of outcomes will be presented, including adapting the collaborative model to a workforce analysis project in Kenya and policy collaborations in Scotland and the Caribbean Region. This first-ever global nursing conference is precedent setting in that the participants gained knowledge and fostered new partnerships within the health sector and between governments and civil society.
