Description/Overview: The International Academic Nursing Alliance is a global nursing database linking schools of nursing and their faculty around the world. The session will describe how the database can be used to search for and implement best-in-class nursing curriculum without the need to invest the tremendous resources typically needed to develop nursing program curriculum from concept to implementation. Information on how a school can participate in IANA will also be included.
Learner Objective #1: Describe the purpose of the International Academic Nursing Alliance (IANA).
Learner Objective #2: Discuss the IANA model/framework as a means for promoting academic collegiality and a means for sharing of academic resources globally.
