Description/Overview: This symposium is a collaborative effort to share teaching and research strategies offered by US faculty to certain nurse education programs in India. The idea for the symposium was born at the 23rd Congress in Australia when the presenters met for the first time, noted each otherís presentations and realized that there were issues common to all which differed slightly due to location and nature of the program. It was felt that the presenters could address these issues using the common umbrella of nursing education in India. The first paper will describe the use of young inexperienced faculty and types of faculty development programs that have been carried out in a remote, fledgling program in the Himalayas. The second paper will describe a global health education site located in rural southern India and the third will discuss nursing research related toevidence base practice in an urban university . The symposium presenters all have ongoing experience in nursing programs in India and will show that collaboration between and among themselves and the nursing programs benefit all parties concerned.
Learner Objective #1: Describe three distinct efforts to enhance nursing education in India emphasizing research and practice.
Learner Objective #2: Gain knowledge of how to resolve issues regarding nursing education and research when working with a developing country.
