Abstract

As the world becomes a smaller place through international travel and instant communication, nurses must expand their notions of the populations for whom they will care and the nursing colleagues with whom they will work. This article describes some of the reasons why all nurses must become more knowledgeable about international health issues, the practice of nursing in other countries, international nursing research, and nursing education in other countries.
