Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Providing healthcare in a needy global community is an experience that many nurses seek out during their professional career. When they return to their homes, stories are often shared regarding poor standards of care, poverty, and lack of resources in the country they visited. Nurses return tired and inspired by their newly discovered role in the world community. When the earthquake struck Haiti and raked havoc on this country many medical teams were deployed to assist its victims. However, when refugees began to flood US borders and its urban neighbors, nurse leaders were inspired to mobilize local healthcare efforts, coordinate services, and collaborate with community partners to meet the outstanding needs of victims. The deployment of the hospital's entire magnet team was essential in order to successfully respond and provide for the outstanding healthcare needs of its newest community members.
