Title:Professor
The purpose of this presentation is to report on a FIPSE (Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education) sponsored project that addresses the education of post-baccalaureate, culturally sensitive, globally aware, family-focused nurses. The problem addressed is the need for nurses to acquire expertise in global health care, share knowledge beyond national boundaries, and work toward better familty health maintenance in disciplinary health care settings. The universities involved in the project include Capital University (USA lead), Florida International University, the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire, Tampere University, Finland (EU lead), Witten-Hertzberg University, Germany, and the University of Rome, Italy. The strategies for mutually raising the consciousness of graduate nursing students and faculty about trends and developments in health care delivery include: 1. Cultural immersion through learning a basic language skills and transatlantic e-mail discussions. 2. The development of web-based courses in module format. 3. Course work and practical experience abroad for five exchange students from and to each country. 4. A home-based contingency of students at each university who take the courses with a focus on a partner country of choice. 5. Final implementation of a change at home based on new ideas from abroad. The universities involved in the project include Capital University (USA lead), Florida International University, Miami, University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire, Tampere University, Finland (EU lead), Witten-Hertzberg University, Germany, and the University of Rome, Italy. The goals of the project are to: 1. Produce nurse leaders who exhibit sensitivity to cultural differences and the uniqueneds of health needs for differing populations. 2. Promote interdisciplinary, family-focused health care. 3. Develop an advanced culturally-competent nursing role for the future that includes a clinical focus on family as the unit of health care management. 4. Educate graduate students who will serve as expert care providers, educators, patient advocates, researchers, and consultants to health care institutions. 5. Institute beneficial change in health care delivery on both sides of the Atlantic. 6. Advocate for new models of culturally congruent health maintenance and preventive care. The curriculum consists of 12 credit hours including: 1) a c\Cultural Immersion Seminar that introduces students to language training, cultural values, social and interpersonal patterns: 2) a Cultural, Communities, and Health care course that covers Basic concepts of Transcultural Nursing, basic models of cultural competence, and models of health care and political systems with visits to policy making bodies and governmental agencies; 3) a Health Care Across Cultures which explores interdisciplinary health care delivery, roles of team members, and policies, ethnic and ethical issues concerning families with student observations of teams in action; 4) a Family theory and Intervention Across Cultures which exposes students to family intervention theories and models with focus on ethnicity and family lifestyle preferences with practice experience in family assessment and intervention; and 5) a Leadership seminar to introduce an innovation in a home-based setting. The project is a scholarly effort to educate post-baccalaureate nursing students to prepare for family-focused practice around the globe and with multiple ethnic and racial groups within the United States and in leadership roles yet to be developed.
