Global Health Nurse Role Assuming that I to be assigned a foreign assignment in the country, there are several global health nurse roles that I would be interested in when addressing this strategic priority. Advocacy and awareness creation being the ones I would really like. Studies have shown that gender inequality in the country is mostly caused by high illiteracy levels and cultural norms (Duff, 2014). I will use the one year in the country to help create awareness about the challenges

GLOBAL HEALTH 7 that women are faced that are linked to gender-inequality issues. It is a common belief that when you educate a woman, you educate the whole society, relating to this, I would spend much time enlightening women about their fundamental human rights and how and where they can access care services (Arnold, van Teijlingen, Ryan & Holloway, 2014). Self-care is another crucial aspect that the Afghanistan women should be educated on given their limited access to healthcare. Conclusion By completing this assignment, I have been able to learn about certain new concepts in global health. First, the assignment has helped me to learn more about the roles of nurses in global health. According to studies, nurses make up a significant percentage of the healthcare workforce, and they are also the ones who spend more time with patients and the public in general. The paper has primarily been a discussion about global health, and this has expanded my understanding of different health systems, public health, and how cultural factors in different countries affect healthcare. Still on global health, the assignment also touches on global health strategic priorities and requires one to discuss some of them in relation to a country of choice. Studying about the health status of the population has not only improved my understanding of different health conditions, it has also sharpened my researching skills.

    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.
