Question: What is the best tool to educate the global nursing workforce while utilizing fewer resources?
Answer: A solution is to have a well structured content written in a language that does not require use of any advanced technology, as demonstrated in the Supercourse.
Nursing Supercourse is an important educational tool for bringing global health training into the Nursing schools and for building a nursing surveillance network.
THE SUPERCOURSE is a global library of lectures on prevention and public health, shared for free by the best faculty in the world.
Nursing Supercourse emerged from Supercourse to improve the global teaching of prevention.
It is estimated that there are 11 million nurses around the world (ICN, 2000), what if there was a way to utilize this huge workforce for global disease prevention education
Nurses are known to be THE most trusted health professionals by public
Nurses address health as a continuum
Health promotion and prevention are the foundational to nursing practice
Nursing Supercourse is a global network of nurses. We aim to improve global health and prevention through collaboration. Nursing students are not getting adequate training in global health. We can change that by sharing lectures that are evidence based and up-to-date. Our lectures are driven by the global health trends.
