People to People Nurse Executive Delegation to India 2010
On September 12, 2010 delegates from the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) and their guests embarked on a trip halfway around the world to meet with nurse leaders in India through the People to People Citizen Ambassador Program. AONE president, Pamela Rudisill, MSN, RN, MEd, NEABC, and AONE chief executive officer (CEO), Pamela Thompson, MS, RN, CENP, FAAN, led the delegation?s meetings with counterparts in Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. The trip was filled with dialogue about health care and nursing leadership in the United States (U.S.) and in India. The most intriguing aspects of our meetings were not the differences in our processes, but the similarities in our struggles, successes and views on the future role of the nurse leader in health care.
