This book is for all the nurses who have crossed their own borders, or might like to. It provides both visionary lessons and practical advice. It is part history, part business textbook, part travelogue, part how-to, and part inspiration. Divided into three sections Values, Wisdom, and Success Markers Nursing Without Borders reflects the international nursing experiences of a host of nurse leaders representing diverse cultures. These leaders, pioneers in global nursing, paved a path of international partnerships and documented their stories for those considering international work. In Part I, chapters 1-3, authors address Values and share their experiences and expertise, setting the tone for learning. In Part II, chapters 4-6, the authors address Wisdom gleaned from the typical challenges, but also from unlikely places. Part III, chapters 7-9, is focused on Success Markers , long-term endeavors that have forever changed how major organizations approach and manage global nursing work. The book ends with three additional sections offering success stories that are further broken out into Collaboration , Practice , and Education success stories. These stories do more than just affirm the premise of the previous nine chapters they share the trials and tribulations associated with their experiences and offer further wisdom of lessons learned.
