Goal and Learning Outcomes

The goal of this continuing education program is to connect Florence Nightingale’s legacy with nurses’ knowledge and capacities to influence local-to-global health, including being a healthy nurse, and working toward achieving the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda for Sustainable Development from (2015 to 2030). This will strengthen nurses’ leadership and global impact in practice, education, research, and healthcare policy. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the relevance of healthy nurses for personal and planetary health
  • Link Nightingale’s life, work, and insights with her legacy for 21st century nursing and healthcare
  • Describe connections between key global health issues — including the UN’s 17 SDGs — and the challenges nurses face today
