Abstract/Summary Global service-learning enables nursing to develop its role in promoting global health and enabling vulnerable and marginalizaed global communities to develop their own capacity for growth and development. Global service-learning requires good planning that is based on sound best-practice principles. Drawing on the growing body of literature on service-learning, the authors outline and discuss seven key principles that can usefully guide global service-learning. These are: compassion, curiosity, courage, collaboration, creativity, capacity building, and competence. These principles can form the basis for ethically sound program development, offer a means of standardizing program development, and provide common criteria with which to evaluate a program's success.
