-why doesn't the world bank convert everything it used to call knowledge management into 9 minute training scripts- start with nutrition as this is one of the world class expertises of the jim kim appointed summer 2012 as president of the world bank; one way to make a fast start on this is to make sure that a first 9 minute script on the empowerment of nutrition and nursing is produced in each of the languages of the 20 governors…
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

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?
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
