International Programs

School of Nursing El Salvador

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 students this opportunity.

Iquitos, Cusco and Machu Picchu, Peru

This clinical and cultural immersion experience occurs during the week of Spring Break and is incorporated into required courses as part of the nursing program. This one week experience fosters nursing competence while learning and serving in a global health care system that provides a real world cultural immersion.

Cultural Immersion: People and Health Care in Central America

Students will provide health care to the rural and urban populations of El Salvador. Opportunities will be offered to learn about the health care systems in El Salvador and Guatemala (travel to Guatemala will depend on cost). Students will meet local university nursing and medical students.
