Project Details

The Global Nurse Capacity Building Program (GNCBP) was a multi-year program (2009-2018) to increase the quantity and quality of the nursing and midwifery workforce by addressing seven domains of health workforce development: infrastructure, curriculum, faculty, clinical skills, production, in-service training, and partnership for policy and regulation. GNCBP was administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), under the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, with funding from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The program used a holistic approach to strengthen nursing and midwifery education and practice through two complementary sub-projects: the Nursing Education Partnership Initiative (NEPI), which expanded the health workforce by producing new nurses and midwives, and the General Nursing (GN) project, which supported the maintenance of a skilled health workforce through continuing professional development in support of HIV care and treatment. In Ethiopia, NEPI enhanced nursing and midwifery education through infrastructure development, curriculum reform, faculty capacity building, and clinical training in partnership with MOH, Addis Ababa University School of Nursing, Arbaminch College of Health Sciences, and the University of Gondar Nursing School. Additionally, the GN promoted continued professional development for trained nurses in partnership with MOH, Ethiopia Nurses Association (ENA), and Ethiopia Midwives Association (EMwA)
