Thank you to everyone who attended the GNC Conference. Please look here for conference speaker biographies and abstracts.
The GNC Conference October 19th – 20th at UMass Boston brought together many individuals interested in global nursing. Both keynote speakers, Toni Hays and Barbara Smith, spoke with such knowledge and passion about their experiences in global nursing and visions for the future of global nursing.
All the poster and oral presentations by GNC members were fantastic. Many interesting dialogues developed around the varied projects as people shared successes, challenges, and visions about global nursing. Some of the key points brought up throughout the day include:
- Excellence in nursing is contingent on excellence in nursing education
- Partnerships, learning, and listening are key to sustainability
- Need for a ‘one-stop shop’ for information on all things related to global nursing
- Need to build relationships with counterparts in order to strengthen global nursing to be in a position to enact policy changes
The GNC would love to hear your ideas and suggestions for continuing our work, especially concrete activities for the upcoming year to expand the reach and depth of the GNC. We want to build upon the energy developed at the conference to propel our vision forward.
