Nurse-to-Nurse Global Initiative (NTNGI) is a nonprofit organization driven by a passionate belief in utilizing grassroots efforts to foster collaboration and empowerment among nurses, allowing them to best help alleviate the problems of global disease, lack of access to care, and poor health outcomes, particularly among vulnerable and underprivileged patient populations.
Nurses play a vital role in global health, and they represent the largest professional sector of the global healthcare workforce (about 45 to 60%). Yet, nursing workforce shortages and lack of education/training opportunities have had a notably negative impact on healthcare around the world. Global efforts need to more adequately address and solve these problems. NTNGI believes that when nurses take advantage of evidence-based education and professional development opportunities, they can provide more effective care that leads to improved health outcomes and enhanced quality of life for patients and their families all over the world.
NTNGI offers vital education, training, and professional development opportunities for the global nurse community
To equip nurses with the resources and networks they need to collaboratively strengthen and advance nursing education, practice, and science and to enhance the health and dignity of underprivileged patient populations in the global community.
NTNGI envisions a world in which all nurses have the infrastructure to support and empower each other in their efforts to positively impact the health and wellbeing of patients and their families. We believe that nurses can reach across boundaries to strengthen each other’s effectiveness; to engage in professional, academic, leadership, and policy development that advocates for the nursing profession; and to serve people across the world with culturally conscious compassion and care.
