Globalization requires an understanding and appreciation of other cultures. As nurses, we care for people from various cultures in many settings. International study is a valuable opportunity to enrich personal clinical experience and prepare nurses for future practice. The UNCW School of Nursing is dedicated to providing this opportunity to students.
San Ignacio, Cayo District, Belize
On March 4, 2017, 10 family nurse practitioner (FNP) students and 8 seniors from the School of Nursing, along with three faculty members (Drs. Fox, Marshall and Turrise) will travel to Belize. They will spend their spring break in San Ignacio, a small town on the Guatemala border, providing health clinics to neighboring communities.

- May 15-23, 2017 - Visit London, Stonehenge, and Windsor Castle, while integrating an analysis of historical frameworks of nursing practice. You will also study the growing use of complementary and alternative therapies (CATs) in contemporary healthcare. The goal of this program is to emphasize the cultural immersion in another country’s healthcare system to broaden the student’s perspective of the role of the nurse.
