Summary
"Global Health Nursing--as a career or as a time-limited experience in personal and professional growth-is a rapidly growing specialty area. This unique book presents first-hand accounts from nurses at all professional levels, who share their life-changing experiences and insights with nurses interested in the global health arena. Written with compassion and humor, their stories emphasize the practical, challenging, and rewarding aspects of Global Health Nursing. Contributors describe their motivation for working in global health, along with the rewards and challenges. The authors discuss the importance of approaching global nursing with humility, respect, and appreciation for what they will learn from their colleagues. They describe how global health work has enhanced their ability to provide quality care to diverse populations, which includes recent immigrants living in the U.S. In addition to these vivid accounts, the book discusses the parameters of Global Health Nursing, how to prepare for it, key resources, global nursing research, and nurses as global health consultants. Woven throughout the book are descriptions of how these nurses have encouraged-through teaching and mentoring--the next generation of global health nurses. The book also provides coverage of domestic global health initiatives"--Provided by publisher
