The Transcultural Nursing Experience provides an avenue for personal and professional growth beyond the traditional boundaries of classroom and clinical practicums.
Students are given the opportunity to examine nursing care in a location that is culturally different from central Illinois. The experience offers eligible nursing students at both the undergraduate and graduate level the opportunity to participate in a 1-2 week transcultural experience, typically during the summer months. As part of this experience, students will register for appropriate coursework corresponding with the experience.
Challenges Abroad offers some wonderful nursing specific experience opportunities. These experiences are similar to alternative break programs. A few of their opportunites:
Hanze University in the Netherlands, has a summer school program that would be fitting for both undergraduate and graduate level students. Students enroll in a Global Health and Quantified self course.
There are many other ways students may take advantage of these experiential learning opportunities through travel abroad. Please visit the Office of International Studies and Program website to learn about other study abroad opportunities.
