Resumen

WILSON, L. et al. Global Health Competencies among Nursing Students: Perceptions of Teachers in Latin America. Enferm. univ [online]. 2018, vol.15, n.2, pp.172-183. ISSN 2395-8421.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22201/eneo.23958421e.2018.2.65174.

Objective:

To describe the perceptions of Spanish-speaking nursing teachers in Latin America on the global health competences which, undergraduate nursing students should demonstrate.

Methods:

This descriptive study was based on a sample of teachers of nursing schools belonging to the Latin American Association of Nursing Schools and Faculties, and the Association of Schools of the Center-South Zone in Mexico. These institutions received an invitation via e-mail to respond to a survey through the Survey Monkey© platform. The survey included a list of 30 Global Health competencies grouped in 6 dimensions. Teachers indicated through a 4-point Likert scale their perception on the relevance to undergraduate nursing education of each of these competencies (1 = total disagreement, 2 = disagreement, 3 = agreement, 4 = total agreement).

Results:

In total, 110 professors of 9 countries responded to the survey. The average score per item was 3.0 - 4.0 suggesting that the teachers agreed that all competencies are relevant to the formation of undergraduate nursing students.

Conclusions:

These results suggested that these competencies should be part of the objectives of undergraduate nursing curricula in order to prepare the students to contribute to the Coverage and Access to Universal Health agenda.
