Nurse Leadership in a Global Economy
The process of globalization is rapidly transforming the delivery and provisioning of healthcare in the United States and around the world. In order to be highly effective patient advocates at home and abroad, nurse leaders need a common and concise understanding of the new global economy and of the international institutions, policies, and agreements that shape healthcare in every region of the world.
This class will examine the meaning, history, and impact of globalization in the United States and internationally. Using this knowledge base, we will specify the impacts of globalization on healthcare by investigating: the policies of the World Health Organization, international lending institutions, and the World Trade Organization; how these policies shape healthcare in the United States and in several other countries; and the consequences of these policies for health. The class culminates with a detailed study of the international response to globalization among nurse leaders, women’s movements for health, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working to sustain and build quality healthcare around the world. International participation of RNs in the fight for economic policy that affords a more just distribution of resources is a powerful instance of the significant engagement of nurses in shaping the global economy.
