Abstract:
Session presented on Sunday, July 27, 2014: Over the years, the Haitian American Nurses Association (HANA) of Florida has strategically formed alliances with corporations/organizations that are dedicated to help reshape the healthcare delivery system for all citizens in Florida and in Haiti. One such commitment is The HANA and Facult' des Sciences Infirmi'res de L'ogane (FSIL) 'Teaching Initiative'. This nursing education project was made possible by a grant from one of HANA's greatest supporters, HCR Manor Care. The intent is to generate a robust, competent Haitian nursing workforce, which will be equipped to address the shortfalls of the Haitian's healthcare delivery system. The goals of this undertaking are: 1. to engage Haitian American nurse colleagues (educators) from the United States to travel to Haiti to teach at FSIL. 2. to introduce Haitian nursing students to interdisciplinary learning skills and delivery of care through experiential, interactive and didactic learning methods. 3. to empower FSIL undergraduate and master's level students to uphold nursing research and evidence-based practice in Haiti. While resource and political related challenges may be a source for discouragement, it is imperative that nursing organizations consider Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society's (STTI) pledge to 'advancing the health of the world's people' (STTI, n.d.). HANA's action plan certainly mirrors STTI's position as this nursing organization understands that partnerships are essential to building capacity and achieving this goal. This symposium will highlight HANA's history, mission, and partnerships in the United States and Haiti. Moreover, we will discuss necessary preparation and strategies used by nurse educators to maximize the teaching/learning experience. Finally, we will underscore the collaborative work/efforts of a nurse educator and students to improve Haiti's healthcare.
