Description/Overview: The goal of this special session is to showcase the excellence in nursing scholarship in Asia and also recognize the Asian nurse leaders in their contribution to the profession and society. Five chapters in the Asia Region will present the work undertaken by their own chapter and leaders over the years. These five chapters (in alphabetical order) are the Lambda Alpha-at-Large (Korea), the Lambda Beta-at-Large (Taiwan), the Pi Iota (Hong Kong), the Rho Delta (Pakistan), and the Upsilon Eta Chapter. They will portrait the development of their own country’s nursing research and scholarship. Not only will they discuss research utilization and collaboration in their own country, but also they will introduce their own nurse scholars. The lists of prominent nurse leaders and their publications from the four presenting chapters will be distributed during the Session. We hope to introduce our nurse leaders to each other and create a platform for the sharing of expertise through our presentation. The intended outcome is to create a formal platform for Asian nurse leaders for scholarly exchanges. The ultimate goal is to form a STTI Asian Alliance of Nurse Researchers - a network of Asian nurse scholars and researchers to realize the mission and vision of the STTI in the regional context. Our goal is a positive response to the President’s Call to Action – to serve locally, transform regionally and lead globally.
