The National League for Nursing have made available online a toolkit for Educators that may be interested in International collaborations. It is available at http://www.nln.org/facultyprograms/facu ... lobexp.pdf
This toolkit is an initiative of the International Nursing Education, Services, and Accreditation (INESA) joint
taskforce of the National League for Nursing and the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
The toolkit consists of five sections that facilitate advance planning,
provide practical advice for the time abroad, and aid in implementing
lessons learned once the nurse educator returns to home base. The
toolkit concludes with a bibliography and web-based resources for
additional information. Among the many topics covered are:
* Selecting a host country
* Packing, visas, immunizations
* How to embrace unfamiliar customs and surroundings
* Special role of faculty abroad
* Faculty/student collaborations
* Evaluating the experience and designing next steps
Although this toolkit was developed for educators in the US, content in it may be of interest to educators considering international collaboration globally.
