OHSU School of Nursing is a community that welcomes and celebrates all cultures. Faculty collaborate with international partners on research. Coursework is infused with a global consciousness. Students and faculty cross borders to study, teach, work and serve.

SON Global reflects OHSU School of Nursing's global vision and introduces the community to current and developing international opportunities. The program  assists and supports faculty, students, the OHSU community, visitors, alumni, international researchers and scholars, and all of our current and prospective partners and colleagues around the world, to access internationally focused resources and opportunities.

Global Partnerships

SON Global has developed partnerships with universities and colleges worldwide to facilitate the exchange of SON faculty to consult and instruct abroad. Faculty, students and practitioners from partnering universities and colleges are also welcome to visit the SON through the Visiting Scholars Program. Through the SON study abroad program, these partnerships will be enhanced and enriched through international service learning for SON students.

In honor of our colleagues and partners in Thailand for the recent loss of their King, Dr. Carla Hagen  prepared this reflection: Reflections of Transformational Leadership
