Abstract:
A midwestern medical center has cultivated strong strategic alliances with international health care and academic institutions through the interchange and training of nursing professionals and students. Collaborative relationships were developed with local nursing colleges to build the academic components of the program. Its goals are to: a) build long-term professional relationships that contribute to the expansion of nursing knowledge; b) develop nursing leaders; c) enhance nurses' cultural capabilities to care for their growing international patient populations; and d) participate in international research initiatives. Beginning in 2003, the first formal agreement was established between the medical center and hospitals and universities in Mexico City. Progress was made through 22 exchange visits with 55 nursing professionals and students, from July 2003 to December 2006. In 2007, a memorandum of understanding was signed with a Saudi Arabian medical center, and in 2008, with hospitals in Great Britain and China. Exchange visits are now occurring between these facilities. The U.S. medical center benefits through development of a pool of culturally sensitive nurses to care for their growing international population. Academic institutions gain through the interactions and shared teaching and learning experiences of students and faculty from different cultures. Each participant has improved understanding of the similarities and differences in nursing and health care from an international perspective. Work has started to spread evidence-based practice, create collaborative academic programs and begin nursing research. The key elements and processes of the program will be presented.
