Columbia Nursing:  A Global Perspective

Columbia Nursing’s Global Health Program works to strengthen nursing education, clinical care, and research by fostering strategic partnerships in the context of population-based global health disparities that advance the practice of nursing within our borders and throughout the world.

The Office of Global Initiatives is a resource on global health and related issues for nurses and other health care providers, policymakers, and the public. By collaborating with key nursing leaders in the United States and around the world, we are dedicated to promoting advanced education and scholarly interchange among nurses involved in global health.

Columbia Nursing encourages students at all degree levels to develop an understanding of global health issues and the political, cultural, economic, and social factors that affect our nation’s health care and the world’s. Many of our students come to Columbia Nursing with a background in global health issues. Their education furthers their ability and commitment to contribute to health equity.
