This is a summer study away opportunity in Nottingham, England for nursing students. The course focuses on levels of prevention and the use of the nursing process to promote, maintain, and protect the health of individuals, groups and communities.

Theoretical content mirrors that which is taught in on-campus courses, while the clinical experience fulfills those requirements while studying abroad. You’ll be immersed in another culture and the many diverse groups that make up that culture. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in another health care delivery system.

First-Hand Clinical Experiences: You’ll work one-to-one with pediatric nurses, health visitors, and district nurses.

Additional Travel Experiences: Trips are planned to nearby communities, castles in the area, and a weekend trip to London. This course begins in early July and ends in late July. You are responsible for the costs of airfare while housing, meals, ground transportation and educational tours are all included in the cost of the program.
