PAHO/WHO Collaborating Center for International Nursing

 

WHAT IS IT?

A PAHO/WHO Collaborating Center is an official designation given by the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizing the School's sustained involvement and interest in developing the global nursing workforce. The UAB School of Nursing first received this designation in 1994. We are in the Region of the Americas, so we also partner closely with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).


WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

The WHO designation indicates that the research and clinical programs in UAB's School of Nursing are recognized nationally and internationally, and that UAB has superior scientific and technical leadership in nursing education. This is of value to the WHO and we collaborate with them on various projects with global impact for nursing education.
