Short-Term Programs

Immersion in another culture increases awareness of others’ needs and cultivates an invaluable learning-serving experience. The School of Nursing has offered a wide variety of healthcare opportunities in other countries, including South Africa, Kenya, Norway, China, Cambodia, Brazil, Vietnam, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, India, Laos, and Mexico. Opportunities include participation in mobile health clinics and health education workshops and seminars, and the chance to experience health care in hospitals and clinics throughout the world. We encourage you to explore our international semester program offerings, as well as the Study Away programs offered university-wide.
