Engaging Tomorrow's International Nursing Leaders
Abstract:
Engaging Tomorrow's International Nursing Leaders
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006
Author:Garner, Bonnie, MS, CPN, RN
P.I. Institution Name:Western Carolina University
Title:Assistant Professor Nursing-Pediatrics
Mentoring student interest in International nursing opportunities provides an enriched environment for learning leadership roles. The core concepts of Advocacy, Activism, and Professional Accountability provide an evidence-based foundation for nursing leadership?s contributions to world health solutions. Nursing shortages continue to be witnessed worldwide. Global healthcare concerns for such vulnerable populations as families with young children are growing at an alarming rate. Faculty may provide motivation and inspiration to students by sharing personal International nursing experiences and by integrating Global perspectives into all levels of nursing education during both didactic and clinical/practicum experiences. Partnerships in International nursing experiences contribute to the collaborative effort in building evidence-based practice frameworks for examining healthcare disparities and implementing community-based, culturally competent care.  Planning for participation in Global health practice settings demands critical thinking skills and creative resource management awareness. Research questions targeting the needs of vulnerable populations may be formulated in the midst of a culturally challenging environment.  Among the ?souvenirs? of an International nursing experience lie the quest for life-long learning and a heightened sense of nursing leadership responsibilities ?within the global village?. Opportunities to make a personal difference in the healthcare outcomes of children and families ?outside one?s comfort zone? leave a lasting impression on students and faculty perceptions of the ?Essence of Nursing?. Renewal of future nursing leaders sustains our professional impact on global health outcomes. Building strong and competent nursing leaders fulfills our global responsibility for health promotion as a fundamental human right, and instills in students the power to be pro-active advocates on the journey to a more peaceful world.
