    Global Service-Learning in Nursing is a single source of information for nurse educators seeking to develop programs to teach best practices of care-giving across cultural and geographic boundaries. Nurse educators from a wide range of institutions share their insights about the successes and challenges of program development, implementation, and evaluation.

    The global service-learning (GSL) model offers an excellent structure to enhance nurses’ participation in the global health care community. This book charts the course of accomplishments thus far, and challenges nurses to stretch even more.
