About Us


The Global Alliance for Leadership in Nursing Education and Science (GANES) provides the informed international voice on the contribution of professional nursing education and scholarship to improving global health and health care.


GANES constitutes the only international body providing strategic-level expertise in the education and professional development of nurses worldwide. Its membership comprises national associations of Nursing Deans and Schools of Nursing and is able to offer information, support and advice to all healthcare policy makers and nurse educators.


GANES' mandate is to work in partnership with global and national organizations to raise awareness of the key role of nurse education in the improvement of global health and quality of care. To conduct the business of the GANES, an Executive Committee consisting of at least six representatives from member organizations will be selected to serve four-year terms on this leadership body.
