Relaunching the Directory of Schools and Colleges of Nursing in the Region of the Americas

As part of the "Virtual Workshop: Strengthening the capacities of Latin American nurses through doctoral training" held August 2 and 3, 2021, the Directory of Schools and Colleges of Nursing in the Region of the Americas was presented at the close of the event.

The Directory is an initiative of the PAHO/WHO Unit of Human Resources for Health/Department of Health Systems and Services (HR/HSS) and the Collaborating Center of the School of Nursing of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo, Brazil.

The Directory is a virtual resource in Spanish, English and Portuguese, which provides access to the web portals of schools/faculties and universities that train Nursing professionals, recognized by the governments of the countries of the Region of the Americas.

At the re-launch date, the tool has 1581 records from 33 countries, and allows searches by country, university, and school/faculty.
