Global Health is an area of practice that prioritizes improving health and maintaining prosperity of all individuals worldwide. Without people having an importance on health, our world will see an increase of illness and disease. Nurses play a tremendous role in decreasing illness and disease and positively impacting Global Health by making sure individuals, families and communities maintain optimal health. Nurses make sure optimal health is served by playing key roles in responding to emerging disease threats, providing education, traveling to various locations and ensuring a complete grasp of care delivery models is delivered to each patient or community. Without nurses, people around the world would not get the care that they are in dire need of. Many locations across the world have a vast shortage in physicians making it vital for nurses to have an undefined role and impact health in numerous ways.
