Introduction to International Nursing

BSN or undergraduate nursing students have the opportunity to gain exposure to the processes used by NGOs to deliver health care in Guatemala. Non-licensed students observe and participate in clinics with those delivering the care. Often “Wellness Checks” will be arranged in culturally indigenous primary school communities and participants have an opportunity to impact and learn about these communities. Students return home excited about the possibility of helping internationally in their nursing careers.
