Abstract

Educating nurses in developing countries is challenging due to limited resources. Nurses International advances nursing education through the use of Open Educational Resources, which provide a unique model to teach and mentor nurse educators globally. Using current resources and materials that are free online and teacher-facing, an innovative program has been established that can be employed to support development of and scale education for the healthcare workforce, through teaching the teachers and enhancing the education of nurses.
