A visit to the Republic of South Africa and Botswana: a modern country with a relic from the past



A visit to the Republic of South Africa and Botswana: a modern country with a relic from the past



Abnf Journal 10(5): 116-118



In a global health and communication focused society, it is evident that there is a growing need for health care professionals, especially nurses, to face challenges beyond traditional nursing care. Cultural awareness and values affect all areas of a person's life, including their beliefs about health and illness. The recent trip to South Africa and Botswana, a land that seemed so far away, was just only 18 short airline hours within reach. The Association of Black Nursing Faculty, Inc., Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc., and the Department of Nursing Education (University of Botswana) sponsored the trip to engage in professional dialogue of health concerns of many disadvantaged populations around the world for the 21st century. Although, this dialogue was an assurance that nurses around the globe do face challenges beyond a traditional nursing practice, it was also an assurance that there was a receptiveness toward teaching and the willingness to engage in health promotion behavior within a dominant culture that influences the lives of many people. In a land of sunshine and scenic majesty, were some of the world's strangest and most dramatic landscapes, nature's richest treasure chest of gold and diamonds with a unique wealth of animal and plant life. This land is also the home of big game, a host of birds, and has a legacy that is one of the most scenically dramatic, healthiest and challenging regions of the world.
