Global Rural Nurses: Story Telling

Global Rural Nurses: Story Telling

November 10, 2021*

The shortest distance between two people is a story. Story is a connective tissue that helps us weave together inspiration and hope as we address the challenges of nursing in rural settings. Though the stories are unique, the learning can be rich.
 
GRNEN has invited a few of your colleagues to share their stories. After you listen to these stories you will be invited into share your own stories on the GRNEN Community!
 
Jerry Nagel and Kathy Jourdain from Worldview Intelligence host our virtual story telling circles on November 10, 2021.

A Global Rural Collaboration

A Global Rural Collaboration: Student Nurses' Engaging with Community Health Assessment Sustainable Education (CHASE) Model to Reduce Health Disparities

September 22, 2021*

Topic:

Nurses act as community development practitioners, to reduce health disparities in partnership with community stakeholders. It is therefore imperative student nurse learners experience community development work, as part of their primary health care clinical placements. Through the School of Nursing, Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin, New Zealand these learners have engaged with an education and research team, who profiled the rural English town of Bishop’s Castle, Shropshire, United Kingdom, illustrated in this webinar presentation.

In this webinar, we promote discussion about community development, models and strategies to reduce health disparities amongst participants.
