Nurses as Global Citizens
We are all familiar with the phrase 'think globally, act locally', but what does this really mean when we are talking about health, health care, and nursing? If you are a nurse who is interested in global health, thinking about getting involved in an international nursing project, or wanting to learn more the International Council of Nurses, plan to join us for this interactive webinar. Presenters Julie Fraser, past-president of the Association of Registered Nurses of BC (ARNBC) and Karima Velji, current president of the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) will co-host the session as they reflect on their recent experiences attending the ICN conference in Seoul, South Korea.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe what it means to be a 'global citizen' in the context of nursing.
- List 2-3 cross-cultural health and/or nursing issues that will require global cooperation to resolve.
- Describe the relationships between the Association of Registered Nurses of BC (ARNBC), the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) and the International Council of Nursing (ICN).
- Describe several ways nurses can prepare themselves to work in global health.
