Thank you Maggie for starting this conversation. I am very excited about the upcoming GNC conference as there is going to be multiple opportunities to engage in key conversations on advocacy for everyone who is interested in nursing and public health. We will have presentations and discussions on Ebola and it's impact on health workers; on Challenges & Controversies: Rethinking Roles in Global Nursing, and on creating the future of global nursing. In addition, there will be participants from multiple countries who have direct experience in advocacy, direct care, program planning and evaluation. Friday's program will consist of workshops that will give you the tools for advocacy. There will be multiple opportunities for networking and making connections. I want to encourage everyone who can, to attend either in person or virtually. Barbara WaldorfED Global Nursing Caucus

Thank you Maggie and Barbara, I too am excited about the upcoming conference. The last one I attended was a wonderful opportunity to meet other nurses both local and beyond who are concerned about global nursing roles, standards and metrics for measurement. Not only did I learn from the outstanding presentations but was able to network with a great number of nurses with a wide variety of experience and expertise. This year will be particularly exciting when you welcome participants from other countries who can join using the latest technology! Thank you to the planners for all the work involved in preparation for an event such as this. I hope to see a great turnout. Jeanne Leffers

Thank you, Jeanne, and I look forward to seeing you there. I would like to kick off the week by highlighting a nurse from Mexico. Marina Legorreta will speak about her time living and working as a newly graduated nurse in rural Chiapas, Mexico. Mexico, in addition to other Latin American countries, requires their nurses to complete one year of social service ("pasantia" pronounced pah-sahn-tEEuh) upon graduation and prior to receiving their nursing license. The idea is that rural clinics will have, even if only temporarily, a newly graduated nurse. In reality, and not unlike US professional loan repayment programs, most new grads jockey to remain as close to urban cities/home as possible. The unintended consequence is that many rural clinics remain un/under-staffed. For reasons of race, culture and political history, the states of Chiapas and Oaxaca routinely vie for the ignoble position of "last" in Mexico's statistics for malnutrition, maternal mortality and lack of access to health services. They are the Native American reservations, the Appalacia or the African American communities (take your pick) of Mexico. To be a nurse in these communities is to sign up for hardship. To be a newly-graduated nurse pasante in these communities is more difficult yet. In the Sierra Madre mountain range in rural Chiapas, electricity and running water are not a given; many clinics are not sufficiently stocked with medications or basic supplies; dirt roads, deforestation and rain lead to landslides, making the already difficult-to-access clinics even harder to get to; the clinic may not have physicians, requiring nurses to function beyond their training; regional referral hospitals will be many hours away; and poverty in the communities is ubiquitous. To be an effective nurse in this setting requires fortitude, innovation, resourcefulness and a sense of vocation. It does not take imagination to understand why most nurses (new graduates or otherwise) would shy away from such demands. Marina Legorreta, originally from Guanajuato, graduated from one of Mexico's top universities (Tecnologico de Monterrey) and opted to complete her pasantia in rural Chiapas, in a program supported by Partners In Health's sister organization Companeros en Salud (CES). Marina was CES's first nurse pasante (as opposed to physician pasantes). She will describe her experience and discuss the importance of advocacy, on behalf of patients, rural communities and the profession of nursing. Questions:- Is the community/clinic where you work similar to this description?- Do you think your country's nursing schools should require their new graduates to complete a year of social service in an under-resourced setting?- How/should nursing schools address the discrepancies in training/education versus practice setting?

I will not be able to attend the conference in person, but am hoping to attend remotely from India, where I will be doing service design research for Merck for Mothers' Project iDeliver. My colleague, Jon Payne, will present our framework for the development of a digital clinical decision support tool and QI program for midwives and skilled birth attendants to make quality improvement in labor wards routine.We'd love to get feedback:1. How might a digital clinical decision support tool be used in busy labor wards in low resource settings?2. What data would be most useful to midwives/nurses on the front lines?3. Does anyone currently use clinical decision support aids in a labor setting?See you on Webex!Robyn

I am looking forward to the conference and am very lucky and honored that Barbara Waldorf is letting me speak with Elizabeth Glaser on cross cultural issues in Global Nursing and the risk to nurses working in the field. I have recently returned from Liberia where I was working in a Ebola treatment Center (ETC) for six weeks. It has been quite a ride returning to the USA! I am attaching link to the letter I wrote that was published in the NY Times today on the issue of quarantine for returning Health Care Workers.I am very much looking forward to meeting you all and finding out about all the extraordinary projects that are happening.http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/28/opinion/are-ebola-quarantines-necessary.htm...Debbie WIlson

Debbie, thank you so much for including your powerful post. And I'm eager to hear you present at the conference this weekend. If the NY and NJ decisions were made purely for political grandstanding, I agree that is abhorrent. But how much do you think fear and ignorance had to do with their decisions? I can't imagine putting myself at the risk you and your colleagues did, only to return home to an involuntary confinement. And regarding your upcoming presentation on cross cultural issues in global nursing, and the risk to nurses working in the field, which issues did you find most challenging and/or surprising in Liberia?

Why we don't have Nursing TV Chanel? Why we don't have all theoretical subject of Nursing knowledge free of charge to all Nurses worldwide? WHY?…
e Grameen Nursing College is a best for the world model for development of health services in developing nations wherever there is a scarcity of medical knowhow and/or a lack of access to health services in rural or poor communities
Because of the way that Grameen has developed hundreds of thousands of village centres owned by and serving village mothers across Bangladesh, it is able to design the most sustainable and joyful benchmark for a nearly free nursing college
Nursing is a dream job for many village girls
Grameen's secondary scholarship scheme for its 8 million members' daughter enables it to track the best applicants for the Nursing College in terms of hard workers who want to return and help develop rural health
There can be no better investment for a girl power foundation than investing in creating trainiing and jobs of nurses
Ever since Grameen brought mobile phones to the villages in middle of 1990s it has been searching out mobile medical apps as the most exciting social buseenss partnering focus of open technology wizards and leading technology corporations
In developing the Grameen Nursing college, Grameen has found that the world's best trainers of nurses often love their knowledge to have the greatest benefit possible- nurses in developing countries save lives especially of mothers and infants. They are a number one explainer of increasing life expectancy
The case for Grameen Nursing college was so compelling that it has been launched before any massive training of community healthcare came online at platforms like khan academy. Just think what partnerships between those most passionate to end nurseless villages can now scale all over the world

o freeing youth to lead the most productive and collaborative sustainable lives
He was asked by Glaswegian if he thought the 100 million vacant nursing jobs could be a reason for developing the lowest cost nursing degree. That was how Grameen and Scotland started parthering in nursing curricula.
Who else could join in? Is there any greater celebration of girl power than seeing village girls who want grow up to be nurses. As well as supporters of girl power, by virtue of being the earliest experiment with village mobile phones yunus has become committed to freeing every conceivable medical APP. Moreover interviews with health networks we admire most in developing world say the trick is to always deliver a global funders goals butt at same time embed as much local learning. We are racing towards the day that it will be unimaginable getting funding from a global health aid fund and not being asked to open source as much training content as the rest of the project can free

that could help a girl grow up as most trusted person/connector in the community - basic health care, basic nutrition advice, basic sanitation and clean water, green energy advice - plus increasingly in the age of net generation being mobilised to search vital information ahead of time
BY nearly free nursing college we mean:
including health topics from 5th grade up at least in rural villages or places where there is a lack of basic knowhow
secondary scholarships onwards for those who see this as the career they want
making health knowhow second only to maths at such spaces as khan academy and open elarning campuses of world bank and elearning satellite of yazmi
celebrating the lowest cost real curricula such as those grameen nursing college offers and partners in health aims to open up to society out of its teaching hospital in haiti
There are 3 reasons why some elderly macroeconomists (and place leaders who have yet to believe their main purpose of public service is to reduce inequality and value all childs safety rights) may do everything in their power to block this leap forward by and with feminine (and indeed parenting) kind
1) economics has never counted any of the above children caring, environmental and community building services - more generally economics devalues trust and collaboration and every open society peaceful way that abundancy of knowledge multiplying in use is opposite to the dynamic of consuming up things
2 both of the bangladeshi models of microcredit banking stared with embedding basic health service networking - people who do not include education and health in the way they assess microcredit models a re misinforming everyone
3 as The Economist surveyed in 1984, the test of whether the whole worldwide financial system would be designed to sustain or end net generation youth removed round designing 3 times less costly healthcare mot 3 times more expensive

FREEMARKET Role - Unacknowledged heroine of affordable healthcare and community job creation
What would world miss without Barbara Parfitt?
Recommended peoples purpose of healthcare -affordable so that nobody dies before their time as a joyfully active contributor to business or society - depends on communities celebrating nurses. To deeply understand the possibilities we celebrate understanding the inspiration of Barbara's project of ending nurseless villages.
Having spent most of her life out of Glasgow training as many nurses for the National Health Service as anyone, Barbara decided to become the practice leader of the Grameen Nursing College in Dhaka Bangladesh - the flagship collaboration project of social business healthcare which Dr Yunus first announced to the world in his Laureate speech 2006
Next youth collaboration challenges
As many worldwide youth as possible need to know how and why to advocate for the end nurseless village project as being the most pivotal of all Girl Power projects. It can create tens of millions of jobs for young women who would otherwise be underemployed, or in developing countries married through dowries or other mechanisms that dont empower a human being to develop her own greatest talents
Tens of millions may be an underestimate the more we look at how mobile technology can change total education and health systems. For example village girls can now take mobile ultrasounds around village ,mothers to be so that the ten per cent in danger at birthtime are identified ahead of time. More at http://www.grameenhealthcare.com/
There is ample research to show that vocationally-motivated nurses know how to run more affordable healthcare than lawyers or non-medical administrators. When it comes to doctors and pharmaceutical companies the relationship needs restructuring to take full advantage of the order of magnitude more time that nurses spend with patients and in empowering communities to develop peer to peer knowledge.

Norman foresaw how the first net generation designed healthcare as pivotal to creating 3 billion jobs - especially the billion jobs that arise from ensuring that every global village is capable of healthily and productively sustaining children born there

Most Economic Purpose- affordable health & wellbeing service for all
(social goal nobody dies before their time; ) segmented value multiplying foci: infants. mothers and youth
Major Gamechanger- Free Nursing College -
subsidiaries: e-medic patient-leading edge mobile apps; open gov - statistics that help people and communities make healthier and more economical treatment decisions
A free nursing college aims to end nurseless communities.
Overall Design criteria
Free apprenticeship to those who want to take nursing to communities without nurses especially those with lots of mothers and infants. Such communities benefit economically from having first access to nutritional advice which a village nurse can be a living champion of.
Major Youth Economic Dynamics
The community franchise explores various ways of being a financially sustainable job - these include blending nursing with education, enabling nurse to be a retailer of basic medicines, technology integration of nurse as monitor of advancing warning signals (eg which 10% of mothers are at risk of mortality at birth), transferring focus of how government spends healthcare budget, branding nursing as number 1 focus of foundations concerned with girl effect, valuing nurse as society's number 1 safety agent.
Celebrate informal not just formal value-proven ideas : it is better for a community to have a well-enough trained youngster as a point of contact for nursing inquiries than no contact point at all; maximise mentoring flows from retiring nurses (something formal systems' lawyers actually minimise); new economies of technology treatments are revealing many cases where it is more economic to train a nurse in caring for one type of patients than needing expertise in all patients. Nurses can be the cross-culturally most-trusted person in a community and so a door-opener to society as lab for most urgent redesigns - eg what the UK calls Big Society transfer of governing over to community sustaining its own solutions.
Free tertiary education models have two most economics segments - those who create new jobs, apprenticeships for services where supply is way below demand. Free nursing college is both the most valuable and largest jobs stimulant of apprenticeship-type education.
Nursing can be designed to multiply open-knowledge sharing dynamics of future of economical healthcare with particular focus on wellbeing and prevention targeting otherwise vulnerable demographic groups. There are huger emotional intelligence flows to energise round nurses than any of the other role-players in healthcare. The nurse as heroine is the sign of cultural and cross-cultural sustainability in 21st C
.2013 -debating: what is unique productivity multiplier of grameen brand as an organisation then the most important thing international friends of yunus can do now is find him nursing trainers- how many of the 4 active usa states of yunus student competitions have been asked whether they can supply nursing trainers; and is this a primary selection condition in terms of choosing which new states to roll out to?
logic - systemically it is clear to me that every misunderstanding of grameen microcredit starts by failing to see that unlike brac or indeed any other microcredit ever conceived the productivity multiplier of basic grameen from 1976 to 1996 was the village centre of 60 women as a group; it was nothing to do with separate goal of individual advancement over $1 or $2 a day
between about 1996 and 2005 the village centre mobilised by 1 telephone lady per centre was the main advance in productivity unit because what had previously been 100000 separate centre-hubs could now share knowhow
however investment in mobile infrastrucure and worldwide models have now advanced so fast that even if yunus had retained control of grameen phone - the main economic unit could not continue as the centre without any unique knowledge franchise
i had wondered whether the way energy is distributed had become grameen's new pattern but having just read a german book on the whole history of grameen shakti clearly not -perversely given all yunus previous developments with the village, shakti exponential multipliers depended on winning over goodwill of the richest in each village -it wasnt a centre-founded model at all
so all (and it can be argued to be a very big all because 16 years lead in how villagers use mobile would suggest girl power of nursing can be the most trusted network multipliier) yunus has left as a unique multiplier at the most micro level is the 21st c nurse planted in evry village to be mobilised as community's most trusted information networker as well as basic health practitioner -
in a different world - if politicians and civil society grassroots networks were as one in bangladesh (and if washingtton dc hadnt spent last 11 years misunderstanding east and west's deepest cultures) then the urgency of understanding what is grameen unique productive multiplier wouldnt have been so great but right now any competent brand valuation expert or systemic mapper of microcomincs would confirm: its all or nothing unless there is some productive multplier of grameen's sustainability as a uniquely productive bangladesh grassroots network - that i havent yet been able to find in 5 years of searching
i would delight in counter-views if they have a systemic not emotional substance that could provide a valid way of mediating the huge conflicts that grameen in bangaldesh is surrounded by
unfortunately the scottish origins of the grameen nursing model are also in danger of imploding unless usa states give the right lead in the next few monhs in helping accelerate the nearly free nursing college
technical note - in each of years 2007, 2008, 2009, equity of global grameen was doubling -lets say on a base of 6 billion dollars for 2007 (though base not the doubling is the only unnown)
for those of us connected to The Economist alumni of entreprenurship and economic system design who have modelled the coming of internet as social business media/mediation since the early 1970s, there was a chance that grameen social business media branding could have continued to double through each year of 2010s- why shouldnt youth sharing knowledge on united race to poverty museums be a more valuable media than facebook or anything - that idea is now long dead
the doubling has stopped on best scenario! and even the ownership of the equity is now in doubt - anyone who doesnt understand this aspect of the economics of grameen is most unlikely to be able to give yunus any safe advice
