Abstract: Nurses are at the forefront for providing innovative healthcare for peoples of the world. The global inter-connectedness of our modern times must meet the demands of healthcare delivery. Nations are faced with the critical need for nurses. The migration of nurses between countries in our present times has made an international standard of nursing education an issue of great importance, and quality nursing care require high standards of professional nursing education.
Since countries differ in language, culture, government regulatory mechanisms, technological availability, and other aspects of its local society, an important question is proposed: how will a Global Nursing Education that meet standards of best practices be met? It is high time that Nurses with their knowledge and expertise take the lead in Exploring Innovations in Nursing and Healthcare through a Vision of Global Nursing Education. I hope this presentation will trigger thoughtful processes, discussions, and research activities that serve the healthcare needs of individual countries.
