The healthcare sector is constantly changing and so is the role of the nurse. Throughout history nurses are the only health care practitioners by the patient’s bedside 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Nurses are responsible for patients in hospital, at home and in the community, ready to identify and diagnose all patients’ problems, plan, intervene and evaluate their care. This gives stability to the care of the patients but also recognizes the necessity of highly educated and skilled nursing practitioners. Global health issues (GHIs), such as emerging infectious diseases, human trafficking, maternal and newborn health, inequalities in health and social justice require the collaboration and interprofessional cooperation among all health workers globally, involving governments and other health sectors to plan and manage these emerging health needs globally.
