Global Nursing Caucus
The Global Nursing Caucus (GNC) is a US-based nursing organization with global reach. The GNC was established in Boston in January 2011 by a group of nurses with common global health interests, in response to the need for improved collaboration and information dissemination in the rapidly evolving field of global health nursing. Through information exchange on international health policy, practice, and education, and community building, the GNC hopes to improve the quality, efficacy, and visibility of the care delivered by the nursing community across the globe.
A Secretary/Treasurer, two Board Co-Chairs, a Board of Directors, and group of Advisors currently govern GNC. The Board and Advisors include members of academic institutions, non-profits, and affiliate organizations. We collaborate closely with the nursing and midwifery group at Global Health Delivery Online and the Global Alliance for Nursing and Midwifery (GANM).
The Global Nursing Caucus envisions a world in which nurses collaborate globally, impacting research, practice, and policy, in order to advance health for all.
Our mission is to advance the role of nurses in global health practice, education, and policy through advocacy, collaboration, engagement, and research.
- Collaboration – Building a global network of nurses sharing innovative solutions to global health issues
- Advocacy – Promoting nurses’ leadership and perspective in global health
