The objective of international nursing education in Taiwan is to prepare nursing elites to improve the quality of global healthcare. Nurses are on the frontlines in terms of helping the public through increasingly frequent climate-change disasters, helping care for the rising populations of older adults and patients with chronic diseases, and dealing with the emergence of new infectious diseases. Advancing the knowledge and capabilities of global nursing elites is imperative. The main purpose of nursing education is to educate future nursing leaders. This paper describes the internationalization of nursing education in the Department of Nursing at National Cheng Kung University as well as the process of establishing the Asia-Pacific Nursing Education Alliance to highlight the international characteristics of nursing education, the related global social influence, and the pursuit of sustainable development goals.
