New nationally recognized special interest group.
The Canadian Association for International Nursing (CAIN) is a new CNA recognized national special interest group, formed in spring of 2007. The nurses from across Canada who form our membership are interested in enhancing awareness, education and dialogue amongst nurses and health care practitioners interested in global health.
CAIN has started a number of activities and has exciting plans for much more. With approximately 100 members we have launched a website, published and exciting newsletter full of stories and opportunities and have created a forum through facebook to chat about how we can collectively enrich the experiences of those travelling abroad and the health and wellbeing of those whom we work t with in other countries. Right now we are working with the International Policy Department of CNA to create a database of nurses active in international work. Moving forward we plan to help define international nursing and facilitate members access to preparatory resources. We want to partner with other national nursing associations, international NGO's and with schools of nursing who offer international nursing experience for their students.
If you are interested in joining this exciting group of nurses look us up at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you!
