Faculty Administration Partnerships: Vital for Learning
This book represents an assessment of where we are as nurse educators in developing programs of global service-learning. Nurse educators from a wide range of institutions share their insights about the successes and challenges of program development, implementation, and evaluation. There are undoubtedly a myriad of stories behind each partnership and project, for each time we develop a new global connection we learn so much about our partners and their culture. We create memories of others, of their strengths and limitations, of their struggles for health and wellness, and we can conclude that we are more alike than different.
The global service-learning model offers an excellent structure within which to enhance our participation in the global health care community. This book charts the course of our accomplishments thus far, and challenges us to stretch even more.
