Abstract: International community-based health care is important for integrating the concept of globalization into nursing education. Through international collaboration, nurses can connect with people with the common goal of understanding global health issues, examining different health care systems, and improving health for all, regardless of color, culture, language spoken, age, or socioeconomic status. With international collaboration and clinical experiences, nurse educators can establish relationships to develop global research projects and enhance nursing students’ cultural competence. In this special issue, we address community-based care programs and research both in the United States and in international locales. The issue also explores health problems among minority populations.
