Hays to keynote Global Nursing Caucus at UMass Boston

October 17, 2012

Nurses already fulfilling greater healthcare demands around the globe

Regis College President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN, will deliver a keynote address at the Global Nursing Caucus Conference October 19 and 20 at 7 p.m. in the Ryan Lounge at UMass-Boston. The conference starts at 6 p.m., and information about it can be found at this link.

Former Dean of the Regis College School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions, President Hays will speak on “Send in the Nurses: Why the Era of Nursing on the Global Stage Has Arrived.”

In 2007, she was instrumental in founding the Regis College Haiti Project to educate nursing faculty in Haiti so they, in turn, could improve the delivery of health care to that severely challenged nation.

“As we have learned through the Regis College Haiti Project to educate nursing faculty in that country,” she continued, “global health initiatives do not have to be big and glamorous to be good and even great. In fact, small, intense, and well-designed projects are often more flexible, collaborative, and efficient.”

The conference will focus on nursing education and training initiatives, skills for promoting health in settings with resources are limited, and partnerships and collaborations to advance health and the role of nursing.

Also speaking will be Barbara Smith PhD, RN, FAAN, a professor at the University of Maryland, School of Nursing. She has worked on many international nursing projects and research studies and is currently the principle investigator in at study Assessing Risk of Exposure to Blood Borne Pathogens among Health Care Workers in Sub-Saharan Africa.
