Global Nurses: Transforming health by addressing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Sarah Oerther

Abstract

Nursing is a world‐wide profession, and the practice of nursing benefits from both a global worldview and local action. Until 2030, the global response to persistent hunger and poverty and other challenges to sustainable development will be guided by the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – a plan of action for people, planet, prosperity, partnerships, and peace. The 17 goals and 169 targets of the SDGs – including gender equality and ensuring healthy lives – build upon the unfinished work of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
