Nurses, Pack Your Bags

News Story

Cyprus. Belize. South Africa. The Netherlands. The Lienhard School of Nursing now has more programs and opportunities to study abroad than ever before. So, nurses, where will you go?

Lienhard School of Nursing students, get ready to see the world because you now have more choices and study abroad opportunities than ever before. Undergraduate nursing students now have a variety of academic and service learning opportunities in Argentina, Belize, Cyprus, Ecuador, India, the Netherlands, South Africa, and Uganda.

Many of the new overseas educational options for nursing students are through Child Family Health International (CFHI) programs, which enable students to observe community-based public health practice in a global setting; see how culture, politics, social class, and history influence the health system and the care people receive; experience under-resourced healthcare settings and see how practitioners provide care despite these challenges; and much more. 

But don’t take our word for it; here’s what one RN4 student, Leah Kelly ’15, had to say about her recent winter session spent in Belize: “When we work in health care, we’ll be working with people from different countries and cultures. Nothing prepares you better for that experience than immersing yourself in another culture.”.
