Title Investing in Nursing Education to Advance Global Health


Expanding nursing education programs at all levels is essential to ensuring access to quality health care for the world’s population. The easing of the nursing shortage in some nations is a direct result of the global financial crisis and should not be used as justification to cut funding for entry-level and advanced programs that prepare professional nurses. Given the aging of the population and a large wave of retirements projected for the nursing workforce, action must be taken now to ensure that an adequate supply of nurses is available to avert a global crisis in the future. As leaders in the nursing community, GANES is calling on all colleague organizations to alert their policymakers and stakeholders to the need for robust and stable funding for nursing education as an effective mechanism for advancing global health.
