Health professionals prepare for international service to promote global health and learn from the populations they serve. Service is needed for United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) achievement. The 17 SDGs and 169 related targets aim “to create a world of safety and inclusion by promoting multisector partnerships within and between nations” (Rosa & Iro, 2019, p. 623). Assistance from colleagues, reputable resources and national and international organizations is beneficial to assist nurses and allied health professionals to prepare for global service. In order to build global health capacity and achieve the SDGs, all health care disciplines should seek to collaborate and learn from others around the globe. This paper will describe the preparation one faculty of nursing undertook to teach nursing students in India.
