Background & Significance: The current age of globalization provides the impetus to promote professional interactions that facilitate both international scholarly work and faculty exchange. Therefore, a number of educational institutions and nurse researchers/educators are involved in international scholarly activities such as consultation, collaborative research, and professional exchanges. Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to describe global connectedness with nursing colleagues focusing on research collaboration and teaching. Methods: Models for collaborative international research include: (a) conducting research in a variety of countries; (b) comparing beliefs, values, and cultural practices globally; and (c) active collaborative research teams. Working together provides opportunities to share expertise and mentor novice researchers who are international colleagues. However, collaborative research should be based on addressing complex global health issues including (a) global patterns of health and illness, (b) socio-cultural health/illness beliefs/practices, (c) health care delivery systems and models of nursing care, (d) sustainable development, (e) transitional life events, (f) core competencies for professional nursing practice, (g) promotion of culturally competent care, and (h) evidence-based practice. Challenges and opportunities associated with collaborative international research conducted in Jordan since 1995 examining maternal/newborn and women?s health issues will be discussed. Challenges & Opportunities: Nurse educators teaching internationally have the opportunity to share knowledge and expertise in global settings and provide resources for developing schools of nursing. Challenges and opportunities associated with educational exchanges between a private university in the western United States and a public university in the Middle East will be discussed. Modeling the nurse educator role for doctoral students as well as other faculty helps in professional development. Challenges include bridging cultural differences, grappling with varying pedagogies, and meeting expectations of students, faculty, and administration in different social contexts. Opportunities for growth outweigh the challenges, including the opportunity to connect with committed professionals in the Middle East and facilitate the growth of bright, articulate graduate students. Research collaboration and teaching with international colleagues is a professional and personal enriching experience.
