The United Nations as a Forum for Undergraduate Nursing Global Education: The purpose of this oral presentation is to provide seminar participants with an educational program incorporating global nursing into an undergraduate Community Health nursing curriculum utilizing an on-site visit to the United Nations (U.N.) in New York City. The program presented acquainted undergraduate nursing students with the mission and global health initiative undertaken by the United Nations that are congruent with the practice of nursing locally, nationally and internationally and supported by Sigma Theta Tau International. The topics presented will include a discussion of the curriculum design and program objectives; a review of the purpose and main bodies of the U.N. and an exploration of the Millennial Goals and Non-communicable Disease initiatives pertinent to nursing practice and the U.N. humanitarian efforts. Additionally, participants will experience a pictorial presentation of a private guided behind the scenes U.N. tour and a summary of delegate briefings provided to the student nurses both at the United Nations and the United States Mission to the United Nations.
