Purpose: This abstract describes a nursing educational program using service-learning presentations for international leadership development. Practicing nurses and students from three university schools of nursing and two hospitals located in the United Kingdom, collaborated in an educational partnership with a school of nursing from the southeastern United States during the years 2005-2010.
Methods: Visiting nurses from the United States and nurses from the United Kingdom collaboratively presented service-learning topics of mutual global health interest onsite at hospitals and university campuses in England, Scotland, and Wales.
Results: Through this structured process of delivering international presentations and facilitating discussions, nurses had the opportunity to mature in their development as future nursing leaders.
Conclusions: Both visiting participants from the United States and clinical nurses within the United Kingdom developed a sense of awareness of the role of a nursing leader in confronting emerging international health care issues.
41st Biennial Convention - 29 October-2 November 2011. Theme: People and Knowledge: Connecting for Global Health. Held at the Gaylord Texan Resort & convention Center.
