This unique text elucidates the relationship between global nursing and global health. It underscores the significance of nurses’ contributions in furthering the post-2015 agenda of the United Nations regarding global health infrastructures and examines opportunities for nurses to promote the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to foster health and healthy environments worldwide. While past nursing literature has emphasized nursing’s potential involvement and influence in the global arena, this is the first book to identify, validate, and promote nurses’ proactive and multidimensional work in furthering current transnational goals for advancing health on a global scale.
The book includes an introduction to global health; clarification of terms and roles; perspectives on education, research, and theory related to global nursing; a history of the partnership between the United Nations and the nursing profession; and an in-depth exploration of the 17 SDGs and relevant nursing tasks. It is based on recent and emerging developments in the transnational nursing community and establishes a holistic dialogue about opportunities for nurses to expand their roles as change agents in a global context. The personal reflections of contributors animate such topics as global health ethics, the role of caring in a sustainable world, creating a shared humanity, cultural humility, and many others.
- Written by leading nurses from around the world, this unique text integrates international initiatives and describes a proactive nursing role in the future of global health.
- Organized into three units, the book opens with 10 key chapters that outline the importance of nursing in global health, education, and research, highlighting the history of the United Nations as it relates to the nursing profession and examining the legacy of Florence Nightingale.
- Unit II includes chapters devoted to each of the 17 SDGs and outlines succinctly how nurses can help effect them.
