Opportunities in preparing global leaders in nursing



Opportunities in preparing global leaders in nursing



Journal of Professional Nursing 18(2): 70-77



During the past decade, there has been a large increase in the number of international nurses pursuing doctoral education in the United States. The influx of these nurses has ramifications for the institutional systems providing education as well as on international and American nursing students. To begin understanding the issues presented by international doctoral nursing education, a survey of U.S. schools of nursing as well as a focus group of currently enrolled international doctoral students was conducted. The survey revealed that both international students and nursing programs experience challenges with regard to language, communication, financing, and support systems. More specifically, information gathered from the focus group identified issues regarding (1) lack of familiarity with the U.S. health care system, (2) lack of previous experience with the seminar format used in doctoral programs, (3) restricted opportunities to participate in faculty research, and (4) stress from a heavy course load to finish the program within a very short time period. Universally, the surveys and focus group lauded the positive global perspective imbued on all students and faculties via the international connection. Nonetheless, schools of nursing need to identify more effective strategies to aid international students in their development as successful global leaders. Meleis's framework for culturally competent scholarship is offered as a guide for schools of nursing.
