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.

Nursing Supercourse emerged from Supercourse to improve the global teaching of prevention.

  • Nurses are currently underutilized for global health and public health education.

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.

There are many challenges to global health with different professionals emphasizing different diseases.

Interdisciplinary approach is needed to ease the burden of both communicable and non-communicable diseases


Global nursing health is important, as similar conditions in developed and developing countries alike

Life expectancy in the 20th century was improved due to successes in global health efforts

All students need to know more about global health research and form networks to share important global health knowledge
