The globalization of occupational health nursing--advancing education, practice, and research.
AAOHN J 2003 Feb; 51(2):54
Globalization is more than the internationalization of commerce and manufacturing. It represents a new development paradigm creating new links among corporations, international organizations, governments, communities, professionals, and families (Waters, 2001). Health is a global concern and nursing is a global profession. With the onset of globalization, it has become inevitable that occupational health nurses need to be aware of what is happening with occupational safety and health at worksites in other countries, as well as their own.
