Nurses form the largest part of the healthcare workforce, and they can play many crucial roles to improve global health (Breakey, Corless, Meedzan & Nicholas, 2015). For instance, nurses are nowadays trained to educate the public on health matters and how they can live healthy lifestyles. Additionally, nurses can act as facilitators and coordinators between different professionals and the communities.

Nurses can utilize all these skills and contribute to improving global health. Reference Breakey, S., Corless, I., Meedzan, N., & Nicholas, P. (2015).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
