By Sharon M. Weinstein and Ann Marie T. Brooks 2007
Global nursing impacts healthcare delivery in every corner of the world and will require interventions from all sectors of society. Nursing Without Borders …values, wisdom, and success markers, is a global perspective on education, process and practice initiatives. Nursing Without Borders provides a forum for recognized nurse leaders and activists to share their stories and successes defining nursing’s past, present and future. Success as global leaders requires a global mindset, an appreciation of humanities and culture, sensitivity to diverse human capital, a sense of shared leadership and accountability. The international nursing leaders contributing to this text are role models whose stories must be shared. We recognize their accomplishments and goals; we acknowledge their developments and successes. We thank them for challenging the process, inspiring a shared vision, enabling others to act, and modeling the way. May they continue to build strategic partnerships in nursing…relationships that will evolve and last a lifetime and ensure the continued growth of our profession. We invite you to begin the journey to Nursing without Borders and to submit your story for the next edition. Available at:
