Dear Global Nursing Colleagues,
I would like to send this information about our International Interprofessional Health Care Leadership Program that will sponsored July 14-25, 2014 by the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) PAHO/WHO Collaborating Center on International Nursing so that people can apply prior to the March 1 application deadline. The Nu Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, International will also be sponsoring a session during the program providing an opportunity for participants to present a poster or podium presentation about their scholarly work. Further information about this program is available on our website at: http://www.uab.edu/nursing/home/interna ... rship-prog
The program is open to 30 nurses and other health professionals from ANY country, and will include: (a) an interactive class focused on application of leadership principles to common issues faced by nurses and other health professionals in clinical practice as well as in teaching and research settings; (b) development of individual leadership development plans in collaboration with UAB faculty coaches and other institute participants; and (c) the opportunity to participate in classes focused on English for health professionals offered by the UAB English Language and Culture Institute offered BEFORE the leadership program IF there are at least 10 registrations for this program (from July 7-11, 2014).
Participants will live in a UAB dormitory/residence for an estimated cost of $450 for 2 weeks. There will be a limited number of free home stays offered by volunteer host families. The estimated cost for the program, health insurance, and SEVIS fee is approximately $1,250. The cost may vary depending on the cost of health insurance. The additional cost for the English classes will be approximately $550 (including the classes, book, insurance and dormitory/residence). The cost of airfare, visa, housing, food, and ground transportation is NOT included in the above prices.
