Abstract

BACKGROUND: This article describes a collaborative international health and development program between a Jordanian and a Canadian university. It presents a human resource development model in Jordan that has been the basis for a variety of developmental activities for practicing nurses and nurse educators in academic and clinical settings. METHOD: Reciprocal visits by leaders of the project, as well as continued collaboration between key members of the two universities were instrumental in ensuring success of this venture. RESULTS: The activities implemented in this project culminated in the development of a pragmatic human resource development model that is sensitive to issues particularly relevant to the Jordanian culture. CONCLUSION: The collaborative venture discussed in this article has enabled nurses and nurse educators to increase their academic and clinical skills and raised the profile of the nursing profession in Jordan.
