The Global Nursing Caucus is moving forward to fortify our organization by offering paid memberships to all of our members. This step will secure a strong future for our caucus, strengthening our infrastructure and allowing us to promote our mission to engage nurses to advance global health. We will create a network for sharing innovation and resources to facilitate nurses’ contributions.
