    Abstract

    In a world ‘without boundaries’ the global reach of nursing has grown with exponential opportunities for nurse migration for socio-economic, personal and professional reasons. Likewise societies and their health and socio-economic needs are increasingly diverse. Nurse education curricula need to recognise the global reach of nursing to facilitate the knowledge and skills for global nurse employability. This project considered the core knowledge and skills required for global nurse employability in the context of contemporary nurse migration, professional registration and regulation, language preparation, cultural nursing competence and other issues. During this project strategic working partnerships between the University of Salford (UoS), and Fujian Medical University (F.M.U.), were employed over a twelve month period. Intensive training of the project team was enhanced by the use of digital media to achieve the project’s outcomes. A systematic literature review and narrative synthesis was undertaken, adhering to a protocol and drawing upon literature available in the English and Chinese languages. This process was combined with the mutual benchmarking of pre registration nursing curricula in both universities. The emergent themes were used to frame the development of a curriculum model for global nurse employability, the nursing gateway model.
