Nurses worldwide provide 80–90% of care to individuals in many underserved areas. However, it remains extremely difficult for nurses to acquire the broad-base of education and clinical experience that will afford them the skills to provide care for vulnerable populations both here and abroad. To address this issue, the MGH Institute of Health Professions School of Nursing, in conjunction with clinicians at the world-renowned Partners In Health, has created two certificates in Global Health Nursing.
A 9-credit, fully online Certificate of Completion is available for RNs with a baccalaureate degree or higher, and a 15-credit Certificate of Advanced Study is available for master’s-prepared nurses. Both programs offer flexible schedules in order to accommodate working professionals. Start either program this January by enrolling in Introduction to Global Health or Immigrant and Refugee Health.
