The State of Nursing and Nursing Education in Africa

This book is a critical resource for academics and practitioners who want to work in Africa or who wish to collaborate with colleagues or institutions in Africa.

Nursing is a critical component of health care in nearly every community – regardless of development. And nursing education is often seen as a key indicator of the health of a country's health care system. For markets in developing countries, the forecasts are mixed.

The State of Nursing and Nursing Education in Africa: A Country-By-Country Review is the first report of its kind to document the nursing, health care and nursing education of 22 Sub-Saharan countries in Africa*.

The State of Nursing and Nursing Education in Africa covers:

  • In-depth reports on 22 countries
  • World Health Organization Millennium Development Goals and the progress each country is making
  • Forecasts for the future of nursing and nursing education in Africa

Learning how nurses are functioning in developing and advanced countries gives us insight into how health care systems develop as well as data about developing education, health care, pharma and care markets. And, understanding the state of nursing education in Africa gives us a glimpse into the future.
